Cumulus Names David Kelly PD for KCUB-AM, Tucson

Cumulus Media names David Kelly program director for sports talk outlet KCUB-AM, Tucson “Wildcats Radio 1290.” Kelly will also host the 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm program beginning June 12. Kelly joins Cumulus from KVOA-TV, Tucson, where he’s been serving as sports anchor and reporter. Kelly has also been radio network anchor and play-by-play announcer for the University of Arizona. Kelly’s won five Associated Press first place honors for his work in radio. Cumulus Tucson operations manager Herb Crowe says, “I couldn’t be happier to welcome David to the Cumulus family. His experience covering all of the University of Arizona athletic programs for television, combined with his years of radio experience, make him the perfect person to lead ‘Wildcats Radio 1290.’” Kelly comments, “When I came here to Tucson 15 years ago, my hope was that I’d have the chance at some point to lead coverage of the high-profile collegiate sports program at UA. The opportunity to head programming for ‘Wildcats Radio 1290’ gives me the chance to do that, as well as set the pace for delivering the best sports, news and information to our listeners in Southern Arizona.”
