Lots of movement at RIVIERA BROADCASTING Top 40/Rhythmic KKFR (POWER 98-3)/PHOENIX as afternoon host DEONGELLO moves up to mornings to co-host with DEE GARCIA.
KKFR PD MIKEY FUENTES told ALL ACCESS, "Seven years of dedication, a successful night show and an impressive afternoon ratings leap in my eyes are deserving of a promotion."
KKFR night jock TINO COCHINO will step up to afternoons succeeding DEONGELLO. FUENTES commented on the move saying, "Since TINO started the night show on KKFR, he has never known anything other than being number one. I'm so excited to reward such a talented and driven young man with the opportunity to deliver a number one afternoon show."
DEONGELLO and TINO COCHINO debuted in their new slots today (9/29).
FUENTES went on to thank former morning co-host MC MAGIC for his contributions to POWER 98-3 over the last three years. FUENTES commented, "He is part of the team that has elevated KKFR to its current position and for that I’m very grateful."
