Tanita Myers appointed Director of Operations for Syndication One

(September 1, 2009) Syndication One, a joint venture between Radio One and Reach Media, names Tanita Myers director of operations. She's spent the last six years as director of radio operations for Reach, working with The Tom Joyner Morning Show.

At Syndication One, Myers will oversee operations for The Yolanda Adams Morning Show, The Rickey Smiley Morning Show, CoCo Brother Live, TD Jakes' "Empowering Moments," Rev. Al Sharpton's talk program, and other shows.

Syndication One President/Programming Gary Bernstein said, "We had so many talented candidates for the post, but it became obvious that Tanita had the skills, drive, passion, and experience to handle the critical director of operations position for what is now one of the fastest-growing syndication companies in America."

Myers is a 17-year radio veteran who was instrumental in the launch of Syndication One and a former executive producer for Rickey Smiley. She'll be based in Dallas.
