ENTERCOM Hot AC KAMX (MIX 94.7)/AUSTIN PD NIKKI NITE has accepted the Station Mgr./PD post at sister Top 40 KDND (107.9 THE END) and Hot AC KBZC (STAR 106.5)/SACRAMENTO. NIKKI begins her new duties in the next couple of weeks; she's replacing DAN MASON, who joined WODS (103.3 AMP RADIO)/BOSTON as its new PD (NET NEWS 9/10).
ENTERCOM/SACRAMENTO VP/GM JOHN GEARY told ALL ACCESS, "NIKKI will program both KDND and KBZC and I'm very happy this was able to come together. NIKKI is a real talent who will do a stellar job of leading these two stations."
NITE, who has programmed KAMX since MAY, 2009, told ALL ACCESS, "My thanks to ENTERCOM/AUSTIN Market Mgr. ALAN KIRSHBOM, VP/Programming CAT THOMAS and SVP/Programming PAT PAXTON for all of their support. I am so looking forward to working with JOHN GEARY, who I want to thank for this opportunity. Everyone I've meet has been so warm and welcoming.
"I am super-excited to move to CALIFORNIA and have this chance to program Top 40 again, and also continue to do Hot AC as well. This gives me the best of both worlds appealing to my younger, fun side as well as my more adult and warmer side. DAN has done a great job and I will continue the work that he's done with KDND and KBZC."
During NITE's career, she has also programmed CBS AC KVIL Adult Hits KMVK/DALLAS, and Top 40 WFBC & Country/Christian hybrid WGCV/GREENVILLE, SC.
