Black Adds Third Ohio OM Hat, As ‘Big Bink’ Moves To Indy


Urban One‘s Radio One has assigned its OM for the company’s Cleveland and Cincinnati radio stations additional duties for its Columbus, Ohio, stations.

The move comes as the individual that had been leading the company’s radio properties in the Ohio state capital drives west on I-70 to become Radio’s One new OM in Indianapolis.

Now overseeing Radio One/Columbus is Bill Black. The cluster is comprised of four brands: Power 107.5 FM, Magic 95.5 FM, Joy 107.1 FM and Boom 106.3 FM.

Theodore ‘Big Bink’ Turner is now in Indianapolis. Known as “DJ Big Bink,” he will oversee WTLC-FM, AM 1310 The Light, Hot 96.3 FM, and Boom 102.9 FM.

Black reports to Radio One/Ohio Regional VP Eddie Harrell. He said of Black, “I’ve had the pleasure of working with Bill and have found him to be the total package. He’s a creative mind with strong leadership skills, industry knowledge and passion for music, entertainment and community. I’m excited to expand his role to Columbus and now work with him on our powerhouse three-city region.”

Turner reports to RVP Deon Levingston, who said, “We searched across the country to find the right person for our OM position and I’m happy we found someone in our company with the perfect background and fit to lead our stations to the next level. Bink has proven himself in two Radio One markets to be a great programmer and talent. I’m excited about what he’ll do here in Indy!”
