The civil rights activist has been appointed Community Affairs Director at R&B station, Radio 103.9 in New York City. Cumulus launched the station last month. Cumulus says Mallory will work with the station's local management and on-air hosts to help deepen the station's relationship with local listeners and connect the station with the community through citywide community-service-oriented programs and events.
Mallory said, "It feels great to be a part of the Radio 103.9 family. Radio has played a critical role in my activism over the years and joining the Radio 103.9 team is an amazing extension of that. As the community affairs director I have been given a tremendous opportunity to connect the station directly with its audience and to help highlight positive activities happening within our community. My job is to help people find the resources and tools they need in order to be successful, something to which my entire career has been dedicated.?
Market Manager Kim Bryan said, ?I am proud to be working with somebody like Tamika Mallory who is so respected and involved with the community. I look forward to her positive influence on our station, community, and Cumulus as a whole."
