CBS RADIO AC KEZK (FRESH 102.5)/ST. LOUIS midday personality STEPH DURAN has joined CUMULUS Country KRST (NASH FM 92.3)/ALBUQUERQUE for afternoons, effective WEDNESDAY, JUNE 18th.
DURAN takes over for JUAN VELASCO, who segued to middays following the station's re-branding to NASH last WEEK. (NET NEWS 5/30).
It's a return to the market for DURAN, who was born and raised in ALBUQUERQUE and began her radio career there. Later stops on her resume include Hot AC KYKY/ ST. LOUIS and Rock KUPD/PHOENIX.
“STEPH’s track record speaks for itself,” said PD KRIS ABRAMS. “From working Rock radio with DAVE PRATT in PHOENIX or more recently, leading KEZK/ST.LOUIS to a dominant #1 at-work position, STEPH is not only versatile, she just plain knows how to have fun on the radio.”
Added DURAN: “As someone born and raised in ALBUQUERQUE, I accidentally stumbled into radio, the best career in the world, while working at DION’s and studying my brains out my senior year of high school at the ALBUQUERQUE ACADEMY. At long last, after building my career in markets across the country, I am fortunate enough to come home to ALBUQUERQUE, to the place I long for most and to do my show at the all-new NASH-FM 92.3 KRST. I cannot wait to hang out with my family -- aunts, uncles, cousins and my son, BEN, who is studying at [UNIVERSITY OF NEW MEXICO] ... and to have a 505 phone number again! I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the new NASH-FM 92.3 KRST.”
