The Columbus City Council has approved a resolution honoring CD 92.9 FM President and Owner Randy Malloy for his 30 years of advocacy and commitment to the Columbus-area community through his many roles with WWCD-FM and WWCD-AM.
“Randy has been a dynamic leader in Columbus’ entertainment world for as long as I can remember. His contributions to audiences in this city have been a game-changer,” said board member Emmanuel V. Remy. , we are proud to honor the legacy of those who contribute to the fabric that makes this city so amazing and Randy exemplifies that greatness.”
Malloy began his career as a paid employee at CD 92.9 FM (formerly CD101 and CD102.5) in May 1992 and has held various positions since, including Director of Promotions, Director of Marketing and Director of Operations. In March 2011, Malloy went from employee to owner/president when he purchased the station.
With Malloy at the helm, the station has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to local children’s charities, including Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, and Directions for Youth and Families.
Most recently, Malloy launched CD102.5 Cares to help small businesses and nonprofits navigate uncertainty during the height of the coronavirus pandemic. The program offered promotional and marketing support through advertising, promotions and free advice, further reinforcing Malloy’s designation as a key partner in the Columbus community.
“In the 30 years that I have known Randy Malloy, his commitment to helping his community has only grown stronger and the arts community in Columbus has benefited immensely from his support and that of the station. He is always personally involved and will stop at nothing to ensure that any effort the radio station is involved in is successful. Columbus is simply a better city because Randy Malloy cares about all of us,” said Jami Goldstein of the Greater Columbus Arts Council.
Following the presentation of the resolution, Malloy said, “I am extremely grateful to the City of Columbus and the community for their passionate support of me and the radio station. To be recognized by the Columbus City Council for running CD 92.9 FM/CD102.5/CD101 for the past 30 years is a complete honor. None of this would have been possible without the outpouring of love we receive from the community and our community partners like GCAC, as well as many others. Thank you to everyone who contributes to making CD 92.9 FM an essential component of this dynamic city.
