Cumulus/Tucson Hires Chris Matthews As Dir./Marketing And Promotion
March 17, 2014 at 10:52 AM (PT)
Former FLYING ISLAND ENTERTAINMENT Dir./WEST Coast Promotion DAN MATTHEWS has been hired as Dir./Marketing And Promotion for CUMULUS/TUCSON, which includes Country KIIM, Classic Hits KHYT, Adult Hits KSZR, Sports KCUB-A and Oldies KTUC-A. Former Dir./Marketing And Promotion AMBER CROWE has accepted a marketing position outside of radio.
DAN had been filling in on-air with the cluster, since FLYING ISLAND eliminated their promo staff in SEPTEMBER (NET NEWS 9/3), only six months after MATTHEWS left his post as APD/MD/midday personality at PEAK BROADCASTING Country KAWO/BOISE, ID to join the company (NET NEWS 3/5/13).
DAN will be dropping his on-air moniker and go by his given name of "CHRIS MATTHEWS." The promotion completes a 14-year circle for CHRIS, who originally began his radio career with KIIM in 2000.
KIIM/KSZR PD BUZZ JACKSON told ALL ACCESS, "I have been a fan of CHRIS since we hired him the first time. Happy to work with him again!"
MATTHEWS added, "I am tremendously thrilled to join the outstanding team at CUMULUS TUCSON. I look forward to bringing even greater success to these amazing brands."
