CLEAR CHANNEL MEDIA AND ENTERTAINMENT/LOUISVILLE has appointed JONATHAN SHUFORD as the new PD for Top 40 WNRW (98.9 RADIO NOW) and Gen X Radio WLGX (100.5 GEN X RADIO). SHUFORD joins from the PD/Brand Manager position for sister GEN X RADIO 106.1/TULSA. He's replacing MIKE KLEIN who returned to ENTERCOM Top 40/Rhythmic WNVZ (Z104)/NORFOLK, (NET NEWS 2/15).
In making the announcement, CCME/LOUISVILLE Dir./Operations KELLY CARLS said, "We conducted a nationwide search and talked to many talented people. JONATHAN stood out as a bright, energetic programmer with a lot of great ideas for expanding our local brands in both the terrestrial and digital realms. We’re very happy he’ll be joining our team in LOUISVILLE."
SHUFORD shared, "LOUISVILLE is a natural fit for me. It's an outstanding building with a crew of motivated, passionate people who all share the same goal, and I’m looking forward to being a part of that. RADIO NOW and GEN X both have a great reputation that far precedes me, and I'm excited for the opportunity to continue that forward progress."
SHUFORD added, "I'm grateful to everyone at CC/TULSA for believing in a young, obnoxious night guy from ALABAMA five years ago, and tutoring me into being a successful PD. I can say without hesitation that I wouldn't be where I am today without the guidance of DON CRISTI, CORBIN PIERCE, and the entire team. For that, I’m indebted. One last note to D.C. 'WAR EAGLE!'"
SHUFORD launches his new LOUISVILLE adventure on MONDAY, APRIL 2nd.
