Cumulus Brings Mark Allen to Lexington as PD.

March 10, 2011

Cumulus Market Manager Mike Kenney says Allen will program WLXX 92.9 the Bear. Allen, who had been Program Director at WBYT B100 in South Bend IN, will oversee all facets of programming, manage the well established air staff and carry on the great tradition of this fabled country radio station. "It’s great to have a quality program director to take this station to new heights," expressed Mr. Kenney.

Before joining the Cumulus team, Mr. Allen worked at Indiana's country stations, WASK and WAZY in Lafayette. With over 20 years of programming experience, Mr. Allen plans on molding WLXX-92.9 The Bear into a unique and interactive station. "I'm thrilled to be here, really looking forward to settling down in Lexington and pushing WLXX into the future." Prior to Mr. Allens's programming experience, he worked as an on-air talent for country music station K105 FM-WQHK in Fort Wayne, IN.
