LESTER ST. JAMES won't have to move for his new gig -- just figure out a new route on GOOGLE MAPS. The former PD of CCM+E Classic Hits KGOR and morning man on what was Classic Rock KQBW (96.1 THE BREW)/OMAHA has been hired by NRG MEDIA as PD/afternooner on Classic Hits KLNC (105.3 WOW FM)/LINCOLN.
"I had the opportunity to move (for a number of different positions), but for the first time in 30 years, the search wasn't about 'me'," ST. JAMES told ALL ACCESS. "Instead the family was my first priority, and staying around here was my #1 choice. When STEVE ALBERSTON (NRG-LINCOLN OM) and AMI GRAHAM (GM) had me in for a visit and told me that they wanted someone who could come in, build the station, and do everything from scheduling the music to being the face of the station for the sales team AND on the street, all without heavy-handed corporate mandates, I was sold."
