Audacy Names Chase Daniels Operations Manager of Cleveland Market

CLEVELAND, OH – March 8, 2023 – Audacy names Chase Daniels as Operations Manager of its Cleveland market. In this role, Daniels will oversee content strategy, talent, operations and branding for the market’s portfolio of stations, which includes Star 102 (WDOK-FM), 98.5 WNCX (WNCX-FM), Q104 (WQAL-FM), 92.3 The Fan (WKRK-FM) and CHANNEL Q (WQAL-HD3). Daniels previously served as Operation Manager of Audacy Madison. Daniels will succeed Dave Popovich, who recently announced his retirement.

“Having Chase join us from our stations in Madison is a testament to the depth of talent at Audacy and the work he’s done there,” said Tom Herschel, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Audacy Cleveland. “We couldn’t be more pleased to welcome Chase to Cleveland.”

“When the opportunity to lead the heritage brands Dave Popovich built into 2023 and beyond opened up, it was something that quickly became a no brainer,” said Daniels. “I can’t wait to get started working with the amazing team in Cleveland. I want to thank Dave Richards, Tom Herschel, Steve Salhany and Jeff Sottolano for going out of their way to make this a seamless transition for me and my family. I also want to thank Andrea Hansen and the entire Madison team for their support and encouragement.” 

Daniels joined Audacy in 2013 as Program Director for-then Indianapolis sister station WNTR-FM before being promoted to Operations Manager of Audacy Madison’s 94.9 WOLX, 105.5 Triple M and Mix 105.1. Previous programming roles include now-Audacy station Star 94 (WSTR-FM) in Atlanta and 95.1 WAPE in Jacksonville.
