Veteran radio executive RICHARD TREJO is retiring from SALEM COMMUNICATIONS at the end of this year. TREJO has managed Contemporary Christian KDAR (98.3)/OXNARD, CA, during his 14 year stint with the company. His radio career started in 1981 as an Account Executive with KUZZ F/KKXX-F BAKERSFIELD, CA. He went on to hold positions as GSM for BUCK OWENS BROADCASTING, GM for THE PARK LANE GROUP, and GM at KDAR during his 37 years in radio.
His next assignment? "Full-time grandfathering to our nine grandkids," he joked.
SALEM VP/Operations Manager TERRY FAHY paid tribute to the longtime radio vet: "I tried to talk him out of it! But when he played the 'grandfather card,' I knew it was time for RICHARD to leave us to enjoy the fruits of his labor. His faithfulness, creativity and love of CHRISTIAN-formatted radio will be deeply missed."
