Salisbury, MD: Adams Radio Group has named radio veteran Colleen Carew as the new Program Director and Midday personality of WGBG “Big Classic Rock” in Salisbury-Ocean City. Carew comes to Adams from 100.7 “The Bay” in Baltimore where she has spent the past 13 years doing middays on Baltimore’s premier Classic Rock station. Prior to The Bay, Carew spend several years at 98 Rock also in Baltimore. Carew started her radio on the Eastern Shore and was part of the team that launched WZBH “The Beach”.
Carew says “get ready to have some fun with me on the radio at my new favorite station, Big 98.5, Delmarva’s Classic Rock! I’m certainly not new to the area, but it’s been awhile – and I’ve missed you! I worked at a few stations here on the Eastern Shore many moons ago – even helped get WZBH going when they first went on air (yes, I started when I was 12, lol!) I’ve been lucky enough to play the greatest music ever made, and interact with many of the artists responsible for it. I’ll continue to do the same here on Delmarva. I love that my career has come full circle because I love Delmarva – the people, the vibe, the businesses and, oh yeah – the beach!!”
Paul Burton, VP/GM of Adams Radio added “We are thrilled to have Colleen on board. Not to sound silly but “she completes us”! We have spent a lot of time in the past couple of months resetting some things and preparing for the next phase of our growth…and we all know growth does not happen without the right team…and now we have it. Colleen will take BIG to new heights.”
Carew replaces Laura Lee, who has been interim PD since the departure of Johnny Maze in August.
