CBS RADIO Classic Hits KRTH (K-EARTH 101)/LOS ANGELES has named CHRIS EBBOTT PD, effective WEDNESDAY, JULY 16th. Previously, EBBOTT was programming Top 40 CKFM (VIRGIN RADIO)/TORONTO. He succeeds RICK THOMAS, who recently took a similar programming position with CBS RADIO in New York.
“While we talked to many talented candidates, CHRIS’ track record of success with the Classic Hits format, success in developing on-air talent and past history with our cluster made him an excellent choice," CBS RADIO/LOS ANGELES SVP/Market Manager DAN KEARNEY said. "I fully expect K-EARTH to continue to grow under CHRIS’ leadership and vision."
"K-EARTH is one of the premier radio brands in the world and to be a part of the team responsible for its future success is both an honor and thrill,” EBBOTT said. “Thank you to DAN KEARNEY and KEVIN WEATHERLY for the opportunity. CBS RADIO/LOS ANGELES is a second home for me and I’m looking forward to once again working with the whole crew."
