Larry Mac assumes his new role at Area 108, but can still be seen doing his nightly lounge act as Billy Corgan in Las Vegas.
RIVIERA BROADCAST GROUP VP/Programming JJ JEFFRIES announces LARRY MAC as PD of Alternative KVGS (AREA 108)/LAS VEGAS. JEFFRIES had been handling PD duties of AREA 108. MAC, who was previously APD/MD at AREA 108, will retain his midday shift. MAC joined AREA 108 last DECEMBER after spending 17 years at SANDUSKY Active Rock KUPD/PHOENIX.
JEFFRIES said, "This is a very natural progression for LARRY, a great next step for his career. LARRY has worked hard and shown he is ready to accept the PD role at KVGS, I am fully confident in his abilities. With LARRY busy, it will be nice to see BILLY CORGAN back with his gig too!"
"Becoming Program Director of AREA 108 is a dream come true for me," said MAC. "Since beginning my radio career it has always been my dream to one day become a Program Director of a major radio station and I’m honored to have the opportunity to take over the helm of AAREA 108 after the amazing job that JJ has done. I thank JJ JEFFRIES, KEN CHRISTENSEN and everyone else at RIVIERA BROADCAST GROUP for giving me this amazing opportunity."
