STEPHENS MEDIA GROUP/TULSA names JOSH VENABLE as PD of its newly acquired Alternative KMYZ (Z104.5 THE EDGE). He replaces PAUL KRIEGLER, who previously programmed THE EDGE under SHAMROCK COMMUNICATIONS. VENABLE was most recently PD at CCM+E Alternative KDGE (102.1 THE EDGE)/DALLAS. He will work alongside BOB THORNTON, National Programming Manager for STEPHENS MEDIA GROUP.
THORNTON said, "When we interviewed JOSH, we realized he would be a great fit with the direction we want to take this radio station. He understands the music, the audience and how to serve our listeners and clients.”
"I've always watched KMYZ because frankly, they're a heritage station that plays great music," said VENABLE. "I can't wait to get to TULSA!"
VENABLE will also host afternoon drive on the station as well as handle music duties. He will be working part-time during AUGUST in order to move his family from the DALLAS area. Reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
