We took our time to find the right programmer to lead two of the fastest growing stations in the market, KOAS and the new 'BOB-FM.' I'm excited for JOHN's contributions to our already talented cast of radio professionals."
CANDELARIA commented, "I am thrilled to join TOM HUMM, JUSTIN CHASE and the BEASLEY family. I feel privileged to work with such a tight-knit crew relentlessly focused on building the strongest brands in LAS VEGAS.
