Familiar radio personality Karen Vaughn has returned to the Indianapolis radio scene as the operations manager for Radio One where she will manage three urban and inspirational stations. Vaughn began her new post on Dec. 3.
“I am honored to return to Radio One Indianapolis, a cluster that is rich in heritage and anchored in excellence,” Vaughn said in a press release. “To reunite with one of the most creative and hardworking teams [sic] is truly exciting and I’m enthusiastic to reconnect with listeners across the Circle City.”
WTLC listeners may remember Vaughn from her on-air radio voice. At the time of her departure, she had the No. 1 afternoon show.
Vaughn has received several awards including Assistant Program Director and Music Director of the Year from Billboard Magazine, R&R Magazine’s “Women on the Rise” top 10 list, and she was recently inducted into the Ohio Radio TV Broadcasters Hall of Fame.
In addition to Indianapolis, Vaughn has worked at radio stations in Cleveland, Miami and most recently Philadelphia.
“Karen Vaughn is a seasoned programmer with an outstanding major market track record,” GM and Regional Vice President Deon Livingston said. “We [sic] look forward to having her back in Indianapolis after an amazing run in our Radio One Philadelphia market.”
