A Return To Mississippi For Alpha Media’s Newest Market Leader


He previously served as Market Manager of the company’s Biloxi-Gulfport, Miss., radio stations.

Now, he’s moving on up to Jackson, the state capital, to lead Alpha Media‘s properties there.

Ricky Mitchell has been named Market Manager of Alpha Media’s Jackson, Miss., station group.

Mitchell returns to Alpha after a stint at El Dorado Broadcasters in Yuma, Ariz.

As Alpha Media Regional President and Chief Compliance Officer Bill McElveen explains, Kevin Webb recently retired after 32 years of running the Alpha/Jackson, Miss., station group. This led to a nationwide search for his successor.

“We began a nationwide search for our next Market Manager, and after interviewing dozens of candidates, we were thrilled to be able to bring back to the Alpha Media family a true son of Mississippi in Ricky Mitchell,” he said.

Mitchell added, “I am thrilled to come home to Mississippi. It’s a tremendous honor to be able to live, work and serve the local Jackson community with such a talented and dedicated team and I can’t wait to get started!”

Mitchell’s first day back with Alpha Media is Thursday, Sept. 16.
