TOWNSQUARE MEDIA Top 40/Rhythmic WZPW (POWER 92.3)/PEORIA APD/MD/afternoons AMANDA KING has been upped to Brand Mgr./PD, succeeding former PD JASON PARKINSON. PARKINSON left TOWNSQUARE MEDIA to pursue professional interests outside of radio.
In a press release, TOWNSQUARE MEDIA PEORIA OM MATT BAHAN commented,"AMANDA has shown her expertise as an Assistant Programmer for over five years with WZPW, she has more than earned this opportunity. We’re looking forward to the future of POWER 92.3 with AMANDA as PD."
KING added, "I very much enjoy working at TOWNSQUARE MEDIA-RADIO PEORIA and am very grateful to accept this opportunity. I started my Radio-Media career as an intern and have now worked my way up to Brand Manager for POWER 92-3."
Also at WZPW, RYAN LACOSSE is aboard as the new host of the MORNING GRIND on WZPW. LACOSSE has been on-air in PEORIA for five years and with TOWNSQUARE just under two years. Look for LACOSSE to continue his midday shift at clustermate Active Rock WIXO (105.7 THE X).
