Cumulus Media continues to waste no time in ramping up for its acquisition of Citadel Broadcasting and Citadel Media. RBR-TVBR asked Cumulus COO John Dickey–who’ll oversee Citadel Media–about the hiring of Dennis Green this week from Westwood One; their plans for the network radio business after all of the dust settles; the hiring of Mike McVay and more.

Plans also include close integration of Citadel Media into the O&O group.
