ENTERCOM/KANSAS CITY appoints BOB EDWARDS as OM of Active Rock KQRC (98.9 THE ROCK), Alternative KRBZ (96.5 THE BUZZ), and Classic Rock KYYS (99.7 KY). EDWARDS had resigned as PD of KQRC in late-APRIL. In his newly created position, he will also retain the PD post for KQRC.
Concurrently, KYYS PD GREG BERGEN adds PD duties for KRBZ replacing LAZLO, who moves on to PD of sister Alternative KNDD (107.7 THE END)/SEATTLE. BERGEN previously handled OM duties of KRBZ & KYYS.
EDWARDS said, "It's a dream job for a Rock Programmer to orchestrate Alternative, Active, and Classic in a seamless fashion to own the rock audience from 16 to 60. I'm very fortunate to have this opportunity in a city that loves rock music while working for ENTERCOM, America's best broadcasting
BERGEN stated, "LAZLO's passion, humor, and intelligence started a revolution. Because of him, THE BUZZ is considered one of the top Alternative stations in the entire country. As of the staff LAZLO helped create and mold, we pledge to continue what he started."
