WARSAW, NY -- Former Central New York radio programmer and personality Rick "RJ" Jordan is back in the Empire State, after spending a year programming in Pennsylvania. He's now programming "CJ Country," located between Rochester and Buffalo in Wyoming County.
According to a press release, WCJW is a "class D AM facility [simulcast on] 3 FM translators, and that count will soon increase in number as 'CJ Country' gets ready to celebrate a substantial power increase."
In the press release, GM Lloyd Lane says, "We are excited to have RJ join the 'CJ family.' For me, his experience in country radio, his insight on the music industry and his motivation to craft great stationality makes him a perfect fit for WCJW. The guy loves radio, the way the industry used to be, the way it ought to be. Welcome aboard RJ. This is gonna be fun."
Jordan said he's "thrilled to be able to work with [Lane] and the entire staff to ready the station for future growth."
Today is the first day at WCJW for Jordan, who formerly worked in Syracuse and Watertown earlier in his radio career. He then spent a few years repping a few different record labels before returning to radio full time about a year ago.
