Cumulus Media has promoted Tasha Simone to program director of Hot 107.7/WUHT-FM in Birmingham.
Simone has been a popular on-air personality for more than 20 years and will continue to be the on-air host of “The Midday Groove” on the station, while taking on additional duties in her new role at the radio station.
“At this point in my career my time as talent on WUHT/Hot 107.7, almost 17 years, is longer than my time on any other station. Those years are filled with experiences and knowledge about our brand that few hold. As the first woman to be named program director for Hot 107.7, I will now be able to use that bedrock of knowledge and skills to propel us to higher heights in the community and industry,” Simone said.
Simone has been honored as a Female Powerhouse by Who’s Who in Black Birmingham and is known for her service to the community’s nonprofits including Young Women’s Empowerment Conference and the Birmingham Urban League.
Simone has a bachelor’s degree in mass communications/journalism and a master’s in education from Ashford University.
