Mason will provide day-to-day programming oversight for Nashville’s Spoken Word stations, adding SuperTalk 99.7 WTN/WWTN-FM to his existing responsibilities over 104.5 The Zone/WGFX-FM, Nashville’s live and local sports leader, and Titans Radio.

He fills the News/Talk programming position previously held by Dan Mandis, who will remain with SuperTalk 99.7 WTN in his role as Morning Show Host for Nashville’s Morning News with Dan Mandis, heard Monday through Friday from 5:00am-9:00am.

Mason officially assumed programming responsibilities for Nashville’s SuperTalk 99.7 WTN on June 10th, after four years as Program Director for Cumulus Nashville’s 104.5 The Zone and Titans Radio.

Prior to joining Cumulus Media, Mason was Program Director for 14 years for Hubbard Media’s NewsTalk 850 WFTL and Fox Sports 640, serving West Palm Beach, FL, and Miami/Fort Lauderdale, FL. Prior to that, he was Assistant Program Director for Clear Channel Communications/iHeartMedia Cincinnati’s 700WLW for six years.

Allison Warren, Vice President/Market Manager, Cumulus Nashville, said: “Paul Mason, a visionary leader who has successfully guided our Sports station for the past four years, is now poised to bring the same focus, passion, and energy to our News/Talk station – SuperTalk 99.7 WTN.

With an exciting blend of local hosts delivering both local and national stories in an informative and engaging manner, Paul is ready to lead this station to new heights.

As we recently launched the SuperTalk YouTube channel, we anticipate continued dominance in Spoken Word content under Paul’s steady guidance.” 

Allison continues: “I would remiss if I did not at the same time thank Dan Mandis for his outstanding leadership of the station over the last 10 years.

Dan has successfully managed both the station, especially through challenging times, and breaking news while maintaining hosting duties and we look forward to letting him settle into his weekday morning show.”

Paul Mason, Spoken Word Programming Operations Manager, said: “SuperTalk 99.7 WTN’s reputation in the News/Talk format is among the elite. Dan Mandis has built a strong brand, and I look forward to working alongside not only Dan, but with the entire on-air staff (Chris Hand, Matt Murphy, and Brian Wilson), and our producers.

The recent launch of SuperTalk TV has positioned WTN to continue to be a leader in News/Talk. WTN has loyal clients and listeners, and we are committed to bringing stories, news, and opinions in a meaningful and engaging way.

I’m humbled and thankful for the trust Allison Warren, Brian Phillips, and John Dimick have in me to lead Spoken Word at Cumulus Nashville.”
