Shocker! After almost 15 years as OM for CITADEL, now CUMULUS/WASHINGTON, and day-to-day PD at Adult Top 40 WRQX (MIX 107.3), KENNY KING has left the building. He's replaced by MARC (MARCO) OREM, PD/afternoons at sister Adult Top 40 WRWM (i94)/INDIANAPOLIS. He starts tomorrow, (7/10).
CUMULUS Corporate SVP/Programming JAN JEFFRIES told ALL ACCESS, "On the heels of three other CUMULUS Programming promotions late last week, CUMULUS is proud to announce another major promotion. MARC OREM, PD/afternoons at i94 INDIANAPOLIS elevates to PD of Adult Top 40 WRQX. MARCO is uniquely qualified to lead programming at this legendary station as we congratulate and welcome him home to DC!"
During his tenure, KING also programmed Smooth Jazz WJZW and Classic Rocker WVRX (105.9 THE EDGE). He told ALL ACCESS, "I have really enjoyed my time here and have had the pleasure of working with some of America's best talent! The most unexpected compliments today have come from people who said 'thanks for taking a chance on hiring me and helping me grow' -- and that's just been amazing to hear. For me, this is a perfect time to be able to pursue some other exciting opportunities that I have on the horizon."
