iHeartMedia has named Nate Bell Program Director for its two Urban-formatted radio stations in Detroit: WJLB-FM and WMXD-FM. Bell most recently was OM/PD for Radio One’s WGPR, WDMK and WPZR, all in Detroit. He left that position in September of 2017.
“We are so excited to have Nate back in our Urban programming brain trust,” iHeartMedia National Programming Group EVP Urban/Hip-Hop Programming Strategy Doc Wynter said. “He was missed, but it was destiny for him to come back to iHeartMedia.
“Nate is awesome,” iHeartMedia/Detroit Regional SVP/Programming Tony Travatto said. “He is one of the top Urban programming minds in the business and has unique knowledge of the Detroit market. Adding him to our team will undoubtedly help our listenership and advertisers.”
“I’m really excited to return to iHeartMedia,” said Bell. “Being able to work with these two iconic Detroit brands is something I look forward to.”
