A Taylor-Made Leader For Beasley In Detroit


NORTHVILLE, MICH. — Will there be a welcome breakfast with eggs over easy, hashbrowns and toast?

There’s a new leader for heralded Classic Rocker WCSX-FM in Detroit, Active Rock sibling WRIF-FM, Adult R&B WDMK “105.9 KISS FM” and retro hip-hop WMGC “105.1 The Bounce,” as well as the Black Gospel Praise Network airing on FM translators across the Motor City region.

Now serving as Beasley Media Group‘s Detroit VP/Market Manager is Patti Taylor, rising from Director of Sales. She’s been a GSM for the stations, and Sales Manager for both WRIF and WCSX.

Before joining Beasley, she was a Sales Manager with CBS Radio in Detroit.

Taylor succeeds Mac Edwards, who was recently named to oversee the company’s Charlotte market.

“Patti is the perfect choice to lead our Detroit-based radio properties,” said Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President Brian Beasley. “She has done a great job and is highly respected by her team, clients and peers. We look forward to her taking the cluster to the level.”

Taylor commented, “I am truly honored and excited to be given the opportunity to lead this incredible Detroit team. We have some of the best-in-class products and people here at Beasley Detroit, and I am looking forward to working side by side with them to serve our great community of listeners and advertisers. I know I have some big shoes to fill, but I am passionate and willing to do what it takes to achieve continued growth and success in Detroit.”
