John Vos has been promoted to Regional Program Director, Alberta at Corus Radio.

The move was made public Thursday ahead of the retirement of Syd Smith, Director of Talk and Talent at Corus Radio Edmonton, who is set to step down Oct. 31 after 24 years with 630 CHED.

Vos has been with Corus for 14 years, most recently as Director of Talk and Talent in Calgary.

“John is a dynamic collaborator and empowering leader who has had a ton of success as Programmer of CHQR in Calgary since 2004,” said Larry Gifford, National Director of Talk Radio, in a memo provided to Broadcast Dialogue.

Gifford said in his new role, Vos will lead and oversee talk operations in both Calgary and Edmonton, working with executive producers in each market to drive editorial and help execute strategic direction. He’ll also act as the programming point person on community partnerships and play-by-play agreements.

All full-time talent and the executive producer of CHED will report directly to Vos.
