Albany -- The new leader of Cumulus radio in Albany says he'll do his part to help the city grow.

Market Manager Jay Wachs says he'll help downtown stakeholders move forward with plans to reorganize and redevelop downtown by providing free airtime for events and activities.


"If we're going to build a better town together we have to be a partner, we have to do our part as the local merchants and business owners also have to do their part.  And what we can give back to the community is being able to disseminate information back to the public much like you do at Channel 10," Wachs said.

Wachs agreed to publicize a design forum for stakeholders as well as any other upcoming events held downtown.
