  • BRIEF CAREER SYNOPSIS:

    A native of Akron, OH Sue Wilson has programmed Rubber City Radio Country WQMX/Akron since 2006, and is now considered one of Country radio's top programmers, and an innovator. Until recently, Wilson also co-hosted mornings on WQMX, before expanding her off-air role to oversight of Rubber City Radio's four-station cluster. WQMX was Wilson's first Country radio gig, but she came well prepared, with prior programming experience in AC, Hot AC, Christian, and consulting stations on a national basis, as part of Mike McVay's firm. Wilson's more than 30 years in radio include responsibilities as air personality, music director, research director, consultant and voice over talent. Here, she shares thoughts on Country radio compared to other formats, the state of Country music in 2017, challenges she faced as a young, female programmer in a male dominated field, and how Country radio can manage a firehose of new music coming at it every week, with ever-tightening playlists.
