Legendary programmer, CBS RADIO Classic Hits KRTH (K-EARTH 101) and Smooth AC KTWV (94.7 THE WAVE)/LOS ANGELES PD JHANI KAYE has announced his resignation, effective JUNE 30th.
CBS/L.A. SVP/Market Mgr. STEVE CARVER announced KAYE's plans to exit to the staff: "For the past seven years we have been fortunate to work alongside JHANI KAYE as he helmed the programming efforts at THE WAVE and K-EARTH. He has made a number of important contributions that have distinguished the stations among its peers, and been a valued member of the team. As he nears the end of his current agreement with CBS RADIO, JHANI has elected to explore fresh challenges and new opportunities using his multi-faceted talents and unmatched passion for music.
"We wish JHANI nothing but the best in the future and I know you all congratulate him on his many successes at CBS Radio. Fortunately he won't be going anywhere right away. He will continue to program THE WAVE and K-EARTH and assist with the transition until a new Program Director is named. I urge you to continue to take advantage of his insights for the next few months while we search for a suitable replacement."
KAYE told ALL ACCESS, "I'm electing to follow other passions in the entertainment industry. I want to thank STEVE CARVER and everyone at CBS for the opportunity to remain at the helm of these two fine properties, but it's time for me to wake up at the crack of noon and enjoy my life."
STEVE CARVER and CBS/LOS ANGELES VP/Programming KEVIN WEATHERLY will be overseeing the search for KAYE's replacement.
