BEASLEY BROADCAST/LAS VEGAS has upped MIKE O’BRIAN to PD for Classic Hits KKLZ. O’BRIAN continues his role as co-host of the KKLZ morning show with MIKE, JIM & CARLA, heard weekdays from 5-10a.
Corporate VP/Operations BRIAN BEASLEY said, "It’s a good day at the office when we can promote someone who has served previously as a PD and has a long tenure with BEASLEY. The fact that MIKE is a respected and key voice for KKLZ and a genuine supporter of charitable causes in the LAS VEGAS community is an added and important bonus! We are wishing MIKE all the best in his new role."
VP/Market Manager TOM HUMM added, "I have worked with, competed against and listened to MIKE for over thirty years. He cares about entertaining his listeners every day through great preparation and believes that serving our community is his number one goal. MIKE leads by example with great enthusiasm and passion. His desire to achieve perfection makes him the perfect candidate to lead KKLZ and our outstanding staff."
"Since joining the company over eleven years ago," said MIKE O’BRIAN, "BEASLEY BROADCAST/LAS VEGAS has given me every opportunity to succeed on every level. This is just another great example of how they believe in the people they hire and promote from within. Working with Market Manager TOM HUMM is another tremendous opportunity ... I’ve known TOM for over 30 years, he is truly a market legend and I look forward to all that we can accomplish together. VP/Programming JUSTIN CHASE set the bar high at KKLZ during his time in LAS VEGAS and I’ll continue to seek his counsel as we build on the success that KKLZ has enjoyed over the past few years. With the strong, well-established air staff already in place, the transition will be that much easier!"
