IMPACT RADIO Top 40/Rhythmic KWYD (WiLD 101.1)/BOISE adds MIKE ADAM, most recently of CCM+E Top 40/Mainstream WIOQ (Q102)/PHILADELPHIA for middays via tracking.
PD KEVIN CRUISE commented on ADAM's hiring saying, "MIKE and I worked together at CLEAR CHANNEL's WWVA/ATLANTA while he tracked mornings and I served as APD/PM Drive. MIKE's passion, knowledge, and skills in the format make him a formidable talent. We are extremely lucky and happy to bring MIKE on board via the magic of voice tracking. He is a seasoned talent with an uncanny ability to understand digital, social, and speak to the audience."
ADAM added, "I've known KEVIN CRUISE for quite a while now. He's not only a great programmer, but a great guy, so naturally I jumped at the opportunity to work for him again. WiLD is a dominant force in the market, and I'm excited to be a part of it."
CRUISE went on to talk about his search for a successor to KWYD APD/morning host TONY TECATE. (NET NEWS 8/26). CRUISE commented, "We are saddened to see APD/AM Drive host TONY TECATE leave KWYD for HAWAII. TONY has been a great asset to WiLD, and I have enjoyed every day we worked together. TONY's last day will be this FRIDAY (8/29) as he readies for a move to HAWAII. While I wait for the pineapple he has promised me (and he better deliver), we have begun our search for the next AM Drive talent at WiLD.
What's CRUISE looking for? "We are looking for someone who will engage the community and listeners, work well with clients, be entertaining on the air, and understand the music is the star! The person who fills this position will understand that we are market 100, but act like market 10!", said CRUISE.
CRUISE added, "The position may come with programming responsibilities, or eventually lead to programming responsibilities. If you believe you're the person that can bring PPM style breaks to a music intensive morning shift then apply today email@example.com.
