Longtime BAY AREA radio personality, programmer and music executive DAVE "DUKE" SHOLIN is heading for the PACIFIC NORTHWEST to do afternoons at BEND RADIO GROUP Country KSJJ/BEND, OR. Starting FEBRUARY 13th, he'll also assist OM/PD "MISTER ED" LAMBERT in programming for KSJJ 102.9 and BRG’s five-station juggernaut.
The DUKE will continue his voiceover/imaging work, as well as operating his marketing firm and the online Americana music format "The Train," which is heard on ACCURADIO.
"BEND is #1 in the USA for outdoor recreation and Today’s Country, KSJJ 102.9 is the #1 radio station in CENTRAL OREGON," SHOLIN said. "It's gonna be fun to hit the trail early in the morning and then hit the post late in the afternoon! My thanks to owner JIM GROSS and my longtime pal 'MISTER ED' LAMBERT for welcoming my wife DEBBIE and me to their family."
"For those of us in broadcasting who still know fantastic radio and how it’s made, DAVE SHOLIN is a practicing legend in this business," BEND RADIO GROUP owner JIM GROSS said. "What’s happening in radio today as some of the largest operators try to cure their financial indigestion is troubling. Still, it affords small companies like ours the opportunity to attract great radio personalities and programmers like DAVE SHOLIN and ED LAMBERT. We’re absolutely thrilled to be welcoming DAVE SHOLIN to our family and CENTRAL OREGON; DAVE will take us to new levels."
