James Mott has been promoted to Operations Director at WayFM/Huntsville (Hope Media Group.) James has been with the station 5 years.
James told HisAir, “Working for WayFM, now Hope Media Group, has been an extremely rewarding experience over the past 5 years. I would like to thank Brent Sears for his friendship and mentorship over my time with HMG and for taking a chance on a punk from South Louisiana. I would also like to thank Brian Driver, Jim Marshall, Tim Dukes, and Matt Hahn for leading well in their respective roles in our region over the years as well as countless others for pouring into myself and our organization. Lastly, I would like to recognize the work that the Huntsville office puts in on a daily basis. Suzanne Poffenberger, Diana Henry, and Carlin Jones make Huntsville, and the Alabama markets as a whole, better. Looking forward to what comes next for WayFM/Huntsville!”
