iHEARTMEDIA TUCSON today named D-WAYNE CHAVEZ as PD of Top 40 KRQQ (93.7 KRQ). He is currently PD for sister Rhythm KOHT (Hot 98.3) and will continue in that role.
CHAVEZ is a TUCSON native who started his radio career at the cluster in 1998 as a mixer and weekend on-air talent. This move fills an opening created by the exit this week of KRQ and sister Hot AC KMIY PD CHRIS P; OM LANCE TIDWELL will program KMIY.
"I'm looking forward to working with the great team at 93.7 KRQ, on a heritage station with so much history," said D-WAYNE. "I am excited for the continued success and future of both stations."
In addition, Digital Content Coordinator RAMEEN MADANI has been named APD for both stations, effective immediately.
"RAMEEN is a huge part of iHEARTMEDIA TUCSON. "We are excited to have him grow with us as APD for these two big heritage stations" said OM LANCE TIDWELL, who will also add KMIY programming duties.
"I'm honored and thrilled to join D-WAYNE on two legendary TUCSON radio stations," said Madani. "I'm grateful to LANCE TIDWELL for the opportunity and confidence in me to help take these stations to the next level."
"D-WAYNE’s successful programming experience, knowledge of the TUCSON market, respect of his peers and commitment to win make him the perfect choice. We are thrilled to expand his position to lead both our legendary KRQQ and KOHT programming efforts and continue to grow our strong brands and outstanding talent," said iHEARTMEDIA TUCSON Market Manager DEBBIE WAGNER. "I am also excited to announce the position expansion and promotion of RAMEEN MADANI. He is strategic and creative and will be a huge asset as we continue to build and manage our strong KRQQ/KOHT team and formats."
