Doug MacGunnigle
Cumulus Media has announced that it has promoted Producer and Digital Content Director Doug MacGunnigle to Assistant Program Director of NewsTalk WPRO 99.7 FM / 630 AM 630 and WPRV 790 AM in Providence, RI, effective immediately. 

MacGunnigle started at WPRO in 2002 as a weekend board operator, soon branching out to production and on-air duties on Hot 106 and 92 PRO FM. As a producer, MacGunnigle has worked with many legends of the Rhode Island radio landscape, including Steve Kass, Ron St. Pierre, Arlene Violet, and Dan Yorke. After stints at other media outlets in the area, he returned to WPRO in May 2015 and has served as producer of the Matt Allen Show and Digital Content Director for the station's digital assets.

WPRO and WPRV Program Director Neil Larrimore said: “Doug has been an integral part of WPRO-AM and WPRV-AM for many years, and has served as a backbone through a particularly tough period of change over the last 24 months. It’s the perfect time to start him on the next step of his career. I’m proud to name him as Assistant Program Director.”

MacGunnigle said: "I'm ecstatic to be working with Neil and the fantastic team at WPRO in this new role. It's a thrill to be working with such talent on a talk station that's live and local for 16 hours a day - a true rarity in today's radio landscape. I look forward to helping bring WPRO into the future with informative, entertaining, and compelling content."
