iHEARTMEDIA Alternative KYSR (ALT 98.7)/LOS ANGELES announces ANDREW HARMS as APD/MD/afternoons, effective MARCH 16th. HARMS replaces TREY MORGAN, who resigned last month to pursue other opportunities (NET NEWS 2/9).
HARMS will also continue to work at REVOLT, where he has helped launch the brand as Dir./Music Programming/on-air host. HARMS previously worked with ALT 98.7 PD MIKE KAPLAN at ENTERCOM Alternative KNDD (107.7 THE END)/SEATTLE.
ALT 98.7 PD MIKE KAPLAN said, "ANDREW is the ultimate creative partner to have on the team. It’s really fortunate our worlds are aligning again – everyone here is going to love ANDY's passionate, positive and driven-to-win outlook."
"Over the last six years I've had two bosses, MIKE KAPLAN and DIDDY, both are smart, tough and among the best at what they do – it's just that one has $500 million and the other does not," said HARMS. "After leaving KNDD in the fall of 2013, I promised myself that I would only come back to radio if the perfect opportunity presented itself – re-teaming with MIKE KAPLAN at ALT 98.7 in LOS ANGELES is exactly that opportunity. "
iHEARTMEDIA/LOS ANGELES SVP/Programming ANDREW JEFFRIES added, "When a guy who lives the life, talks the talk and can string a sentence together that means something special to our audience arrives on your doorstep, you take that opportunity and grab them. HARMS has been lending some behind the scenes help and we are thrilled to bring his talents onboard."
