JOURNAL Top 40 KQCH (CHANNEL 94-1)/OMAHA welcomes MANDY SCOTT middays, from the morning co-host position at Rock WRXW/JACKSON, MS. Concurrently, night jock JJ RYAN adds MD duties.
Dir./Operations MARK TODD said, “The response we received for this (midday) position was overwhelming, with nearly 100 applicants, and we didn’t take this search lightly. In the end, we felt that MANDY had the sound, skills, and was a great cultural fit for our radio station.”
SCOTT added, “I feel lucky to be able to continue my journey in live and local radio, and even more so to do it with the talent at CHANNEL 94.1. I’m excited to join the family at JOURNAL!”
To accommodate SCOTT's arrival, current midday host MONTEZ moves to afternoon drive.
Regarding RYAN's promotion to MD, TODD commented, “JJ has shown the initiative and made himself a part of every music meeting since his arrival almost two years ago. He watched, listened, learned, participated and really understands the station and its audience. There was no better person for the job.”
“This is a really great feeling,” RYAN said. “I am so excited and so grateful for this opportunity. CHANNEL 94-1 is an incredible station, and one that has been very successful. I am more than up for the challenge to make sure that continues. I can’t thank MARK TODD enough for all that he has done for me."
SCOTT officially begins on JUNE 25th; RYAN starts his MD duties immediately, and he'll take music calls on MONDAY from 10:30a-2:30 p CT at (402) 898-5385 or JJ@channel941.com.
