Heather Smith Upped at WMAL

Heather Smith has been promoted to Executive Producer of WMAL’s “Morning Majority” program. She joined the station in August 2010. Program Director Bill Hess says Smith guided them through a confusing time without a ratings loss.

What you may not know about Smith…She has produced three top 10 nationally syndicated radio programs: The G. Gordon Liddy Show, The Laura Ingraham Show and most recently, The Lars Larson Show. She began working in radio when she was just 17 by hosting a love and relationships talk show. She also founded a radio station at her high school. She was formerly a TV booker for FNC. In college, she studied film under the co-founder of the Sundance Film Festival.

Congratulations to Smith.

Please join me in congratulating Heather Smith on her elevation to Executive Producer of the WMAL Morning Majority morning program.

Heather has been an integral player on the morning show since joining us in August 2010, and her contacts, experience, and focus have helped the program grow even more quickly than we have the right to expect.  Her steady hand during our “interim period” earlier this year served to guide us through that confusing time with no ratings loss!

Thanks, Heather!
