Brody Adds Music City Duties For Midwest Communications


He’s a graduate of the University of Tennessee and began his career in radio in 2001 as a marketing consultant. Twenty years later, he was named VP/GM of Midwest Communications’ Knoxville stations.

Now, he’s been promoted and is taking on a regional role that sees him assume leadership responsibilities for the privately held company’s Nashville stations.

Michael Brody is now VP of the Tennessee Region for Midwest, giving him oversight of both Knoxville and Nashville.

Commenting on the move is Chief Operations Officer Michael Wright. “Michael Brody has consistently demonstrated exceptional leadership in his Knoxville role as VP/Market Manager,” he said. “We are pleased to announce his promotion to Vice President of our Tennessee Region. Michael’s expertise, vision, and proven record make him the ideal candidate to lead our Tennessee stations in.”

Brody commented, “I am immensely grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the continued success of our outstanding team in Nashville. With a proven history of winning built upon the foundation of great people and great products, I am honored by the confidence our leadership has placed in me. Together, we will continue to drive excellence and innovation, ensuring that our community thrives and our company flourishes.”

Midwest’s Knoxville stations are comprised of Classic Rock WIMZ-FM, Adult Contemporary WJXB “B97.5,” Adult Hits WNFZ “94.3 JACK FM,” and Classic Country WDKW “95.7 DUKE FM.” The Nashville radio stations are comprised of WCJK “96.3 JACK FM,” WJXA-FM “MIX 92.9” and WNFN “Y’All 106.7.”

Midwest entered the two Tennessee markets in 2014 thanks to a multi-market $72 million deal with South Central Communications, brokered by Kalil & Co. Brody stayed with the stations following their sale to Midwest.
