CBS RADIO Top 40/Mainstream WXRK (92.3 NOW)/NEW YORK is bringing in veteran programmer RICK GILLETTE to be its new PD. GILLETTE will leave the PD post at CBS Top 40/Rhythmic KZON (101.5 JAMZ)/PHOENIX and Classic Hits sister KOOL-FM to take this new assignment.
"We are excited to have someone of RICK’s talent join 92.3 NOW," CBS RADIO/NEW YORK SVP/Market Manager DON BOULOUKOS said. "He’s been very successful in PHOENIX and is quite familiar with creating powerful Top 40 stations that resonate with the audience. He’s been a dedicated CBS RADIO employee and this promotion speaks to his value among our programming ranks. Joining a station in the number-one market is never an easy task, but we are confident that GILLETTE’s strong background in Top 40 programming will enable him to succeed in the BIG APPLE."
"What a great city and awesome opportunity," GILLETTE exclaimed. "I am thrilled for the chance to work with the entire team at 92.3 NOW, striving for greatness and focusing on creating unique and memorable lifestyle experiences for the people of NEW YORK."
