WNYM Program Director Peter Thiele To Step Away

ThieleBy JERRY BARMASH

Next up, semi-retirement!

A five-year run for Peter Thiele as program director at Salem’s New York stations WNYM/970 AM The Answer and WMCA 570 AM is about to end–on his own terms.

“My wife and I have decided to make a lifestyle change and make the move to San Antonio, Texas.” Thiele tells Tuned In.

He plans to launch a consulting firm. His last day in New York is May 3.

The company is actively searching for Thiele’s successor.

“The Salem New York Team has been fantastic: Jerry Crowley, Phil Boyce have been very supportive,” Thiele says. “The opportunity of launching a major News/Talk station in New York City is a once in a lifetime project.”

During his tenure at WNYM, the station’s morning host, Curtis Sliwa, doubled down with an afternoon show. He also hosted a Saturday shift.

Last year, WNYM rebranded The Apple to its current version, The Answer.

Thiele worked as a program director at numerous radio stations, including a pair of San Francisco stations.

“This has been such a great experience.  I would not change it for the world.  Time to slow things down,” Thiele says.
