CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KNST-A-F/TUCSON gives morning host GARRET LEWIS a new two-year contract extension and names him PD of the station. LEWIS has been with the station since FEBRUARY 2010; former PD CHRIS PATYK exited last OCTOBER.
"Being able to keep GARRET is a big part of the evolution of KNST to FM. His show has become must listen radio and with his direction, I am confident that KNST will soar to new heights in the not so distant future." said OM CHRIS PICKETT.
LEWIS said "I'm honored to be the Program Director of the heritage news/talk station in TUCSON, KNST, and excited I get to get the chance to program it on the FM. Knowing that CHRIS PICKETT and I share the same vision of what we want KNST to sound like on FM will make this challenge even more fun. And I have to thank my wife for being a patient woman... and a so-so cook."
