NEXTMEDIA Hot AC WSSR-FM (STAR 96.7)/CHICAGO APD/afternoon host SCOTT CHILDERS has officially been promoted to Program Director. He had been filling in on an interim basis since last SEPTEMBER.
In a staff memo, GM PATRICK PENDERGAST stated, "His experience and 'ear' has most certainly been brought to bear with STAR’s success as of late."
"I am honored to lead a great on-air staff and this wonderful brand we have in STAR 96.7!" CHILDERS said. "In a way, this brings me full circle as I got my start as a part-time jock on WJTW in the late '80s, which eventually became STAR 93.5 in this same building - the precursor to Star 96.7."
