I admire Cox Radio for the way it operates and manages its radio stations as indicated by the titles it uses for programming executives and it was great to see the Drew Bland's appointment this week in Orlando as further evidence of it.
What used to be called a "PD" is now "B&P," and I'll bet it won't be long until that position gets another letter: "BP & E."
