CLEAR CHANNEL MEDIA + ENTERTAINMENT/PORTLAND OM CHRIS SARGENT has announced that Top 40 KKRZ (Z100)/PORTLAND APD/afternoon personality BRETT ANDREWS has been given the keys to the PD's office. He's replacing OM TOMMY AUSTIN who was also PD at KKRZ, before he migrated back to CLEAR CHANNEL MEDIA + ENTERTAINMENT/ST. LOUIS as OM (NET NEWS 4/3).
SARGENT told his staff, "It's my extreme pleasure to announce BRETT ANDREWS as the new Program Director of Z100. BRETT has been with the station for the last two years and has helped lead the station to new rating heights including the station’s first number one (25-54) in 14 years. BRETT ANDREWS' experience, leadership and energy has been a great addition to the team.
"In his new role as Program Director, we expect great results, as we continue to work with SVPP BRAD HARDIN to increase audience and revenue for this iconic PORTLAND radio station and we will look to BRETT to share his expertise with the rest of our cluster of stations."
ANDREWS told ALL ACCESS, "I'd like to thank VP/Market Manager ROBERT DOVE, CHRIS SARGENT, and BRAD HARDIN for the opportunity to lead this legendary radio station. The Z100 team are some of the most talented, dedicated people I've ever worked with. I'd also like to thank TOMMY AUSTIN for putting me through programming grad school for the past two years!
