Tim Dukes Named Director of Operations for NextMedia Chicago

February 1, 2011: Tim Dukes takes a newly created position for NextMedia in Chicago. In his role, Dukes will oversee the programming of NextMedia's eight radio stations serving the suburban Chicago market and one in Milwaukee.

Dukes was out of radio the past four years, however, in a previous life he was PD of WLUP in Chicago and a Regional VP for Clear Channel.

Floyd Evans, Regional Vice President for NextMedia Chicago, stated, "Bringing Tim on board in this position is important as we continue to invest in our programming and strategy.  Tim is no stranger to operating multi-station clusters and has spent time programming in the downtown Chicago market.  In addition, Dukes has experience with Interactive Media, making him an asset to our NM360 division."

Dukes added, "I'm thrilled to be returning to my first love of making great stations even better, and to do that with a forward thinking group like NextMedia makes it more exciting.  I look forward to joining the strong programming team NextMedia has already assembled."
