Tracy Slutzkin named program director at WLS-AM

| No Comments

Assistant program director Tracy Slutzkin has been promoted to program director at Citadel Broadcasting's news/talk WLS-AM (890), effective immediately. In announcing her promotion Wednesday, WLS-AM general manager Michael Damsky said Slutzkin's new job is "merely a reflection of the role she has played at our station for the last few months." Operations director Drew Hayes had been handling many of the PD responsibilities since he came to WLS-AM earlier this year.

Slutzkin had overseen much of the day-to-day operations at WLS -- helping with guest bookings and lining up other contributors. Damsky also indicated Slutzkin was a key player in developing a strategy to revitalize the station that has been implemented in stages since the beginning of the year. "She was particularly instrumental in the decision to hire Richard Roeper," said Damsky. Sun-Times columnist Roeper became a co-host of Roe Conn's afternoon drive show in April. Slutzkin is in her second stint at WLS-AM. She started as an intern and eventually became an executive producer of WLS's morning drive show with Don Wade and Roma. Slutzkin will now report to Drew Hayes.
