Like many programmers, Doug began his radio career while attending high school. His first job was working for Bartow AM daytimer WBAR. From there he made a huge leap to legendary country station KNIX in Phoenix in 1980, hosting evenings there on the AM for six years. Then, after a brief stint at WFMS in Indianapolis, he joined Nashville’s WSIX for afternoons in 1986 and worked his way up to production director, APD, and finally PD/MD.
Doug left radio in 1995 to go into record promotion, first joining Capitol Records Nashville as director of radio marketing. He moved to RCA in 2001 as its southeast regional promotions director, and had been upped to director of national promotion at the time of his exit from the company in March 2009.
