DC Radio: Louie Diaz Gets PD Gig At HotAC WRQX

Louie Diaz
UPDATE 11/10 7AM:  Aside from the news of a new PD, comes word that WRQX is 'moving in a different direction'.  The station's morning show of Sarah, Ty and Mel have been let go, as well as APD/MD/Midday host Melony Torres and afternoon host Marco. Chatter has the station bringing back Jack Diamond to mornings and flipping from HotAC to AC.  Stay Tuned...

Diaz said: “An election year ahead-- What an exciting time to head to Washington, D.C.! We will quickly work on getting more listeners to ‘vote’ on WRQX more often. Thank you, Gary Pizzati, Jake McCann, Beth Cohen, Mike McVay, and Cumulus for the chance to join the team at WRQX.”
