The winner of the All Radio News Top 10 Rhythmic PDs, Top 40 Amp 92.3’s Rick Thomas took a minute to give us an update of what’s happening at the station, the market and more in just five questions.

ALL RADIO NEWS: What are the 5 most requested songs on your station right now?

RICK THOMAS: Drake/Hotline Bling, Weekend/Hills, Justin B/What Do U mean, Chris Porter/Water dance, Sean Mendes/Stitches

ARN: What new song do you predict will be huge

RT: We are in a bit of a new music drought right now. Drake’s Hotline Bling is undeniable and Ellie Goulding’s On My Mind should also do well.

ARN: Give me 3 to 5 other programmers that you admire most 

RT: Kevin Weatherly, Bobby Smith, Steve Salhany, Michael Martin & Funky Rob Morris are a few. All CBS guys.

ARN: What do you like more about NYC over LA?

RT: New York is the epicenter of bigness, but it’s also very authentic. Bullshit doen’t get you far here. An real-people authentic presentation of a radio product is very connective in NY.

ARN: If you weren’t a radio programmer what would you be?

RT: A chef owner of a 15 table Italian Restaurant in a neighborhood of my choice.
