Radio One's Barry Mayo to the Rescue in Cincinnati

Big Shake-Up At Radio One’s WIZ, MOJO and WDBZ-AM
from the Cincinnati Enquirer John Kiesewetter

Big shake-up in the front offices at Radio One’s stations here: Regional VP Rick Porter and VP/GM Lisa Thal over WIZ, MOJO and gospel WDBZ-AM were fired Monday. Whatever happen was so serious that Radio One’s radio division president himself — Barry Mayo — from the Maryland corporate office is here running WIZF-FM (101.1), WMOJ-FM (100.3) and WDBZ-AM (1230).

Thal and Porter formerly worked for Clear Channel. Thal joined Radio One here in 2006, several months before the company bought the intellectual property of “MOJO” (then 94.9) from the owners of WARM98. She took the format and put it on 100.3, a frequency that Radio One had bought in Connersville, Ind., and moved to Norwood to add a third station to its Cincinnati cluster. Porter was a regional VP over Radio One stations in Indianapolis, Columbus and possibly other markets.
