KSBJ Hires Troy West As New APD/MD

TROY WEST has been selected as the new APD/MD at KSBJ EDUCATIONAL Contemporary Christian KSBJ (89.3)/HOUSTON. TROY leaves WJQK/GRAND RAPIDS after 21 years, and fills the opening left by JIM BEELER who exited the station last week to pursue other interests.
TROY tells ALL ACCESS, "I am the new APD/MD at KSBJ. I can't wait to work with TY MCFARLANE. When I ask people about TY, there is never a bad word about the guy. He's just all class and I can learn a ton from him. The staff at KSBJ is so talented and knowledgeable. RACHELLE has voicetracked for me for years here at JQ. I loved listening to COPPELIA when she was on AIR1. Throw in JON HULL and TIM MCDERMOTT ... Wow! Now, I get to work with these people.
"I have been at JQ99 for 21 years, so it had to be the 'right' thing for me to go. I honestly thought I would finish my career here. I would have been very happy to do that as well. JQ99.3 is a wonderful place to work. When I got the offer from HOUSTON, I prayed and sought counsel and just knew it was something that I had to go for. I did not want to think in a few years, 'What if ...'. So, that's that. I'm changing wardrobes and headed SOUTH!"
