R Dub Signs Multi-Year Deal

By Joe Nelson

Congratulations R Dub! Really one of the hardest working and creative people in the biz!

SAN DIEGO’S Z90 & MAGIC 92.5
RE-UP R DUB! IN MULTI-YEAR DEAL


SAN DIEGO, CA   Local Media San Diego announces that the company has re-signed XHTZ & XHRM Program Director and Afternoon Personality R Dub! to a new, multi-year deal. R Dub! joined the stations in April of 2011. With the agreement, comes R Dub!’s new title of Supreme Commander (we’re serious), where he will continue to oversee the programming, strategy and branding of the company’s CHR, AC and Urban products.

Gregg Wolfson, Vice President/General Manager of Local Media San Diego, said: “We are extremely excited that RDub! will continue to call Local Media San Diego his home.  His ability to deliver relevant and compelling local radio to San Diego is nothing shy of impressive.” 

R Dub! said: “Apparently, I’m still foolin’ ‘em!

No, seriously, I wake up every single day and pinch myself. I’m not only so fortunate to do radio in the country’s most desirable place to live, but I’m working with a company that truly believes in live, local and dynamic content! From our iconic brands and patented promotions like#EPIC48Hours, to the incredible pool of talent we have in the building—including Morton in the Morning and Jagger and Kristi—I’m so proud to play a small role in this incredible team, that is truly a family.

The group celebrated the occasion with a lobster lunch, just across the border from San Diego, in Puerto Nuevo, Mexico, near the stations’ Tijuana transmitters.


I’d like to thank VP/General Manager Gregg Wolfson, consultant Tracy Johnson and Director of Operations/Programming Joe Lindsay, for an amazing seven years, and here’s to mucho mas!”
