iHEARTMEDIA Top 40 KPLV/LAS VEGAS has named BIG D APD/morning show host, effective APRIL 1st. Previously, BIG D did evenings at KDWB/MINNEAPOLIS, where he’ll work until a replacement is hired. He will also continue on-air duties at other iHEARTMEDIA stations across the country including WZEE/MADISON, KAJA/SAN ANTONIO and WQEN/BIRMINGHAM.
"I am more than ready to tackle the new opportunities that I have been given by everyone at iHEARTMEDIA/LAS VEGAS. There is already an amazing team in place and I'm so honored to be a part of it," said BIG D. "It's an exciting new chapter for my career and my family. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't sad to leave KDWB and the staff in MINNEAPOLIS. Everyone has been so great to me since day one and I learned so much, but I can't wait to get started at KPLV."
"Big D is a remarkable entertainer and communicator, the like of which are unmatched in LAS VEGAS and we are thrilled to have him join the team," iHEARTMEDIA/LAS VEGAS SVP/Programming CHRIS PICKETT said. "Just as it was in the TWIN CITIES, his energy and positive attitude will be contagious throughout the LAS VEGAS VALLEY."
KDWB PD J.B. WILDE added, "I'm so happy for BIG D, our sister station in LAS VEGAS, and the people of SIN CITY who will fall in love with D's style and infectious laugh. D's departure leaves us with an exciting opportunity to find another dynamic, charismatic night personality to entertain the TWIN CITIES on 101.3 KDWB. This is one of the biggest stages in the industry and we already have top notch talent emailing, eager to lead KDWB nights to new heights. 101.3 KDWB is an iconic brand with a history of attracting the industry’s finest talent.
"We're seeking a dynamic personality that understands how to engage and entertain our target listener, be a master content creator on air and online and have a keen understanding of activating our tribe using Social Media (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, INSTAGRAM, SNAPCHAT, et al). Strong work ethic, creativity, imagination, and exercise of independent professional judgment is a must. We're looking for a star that sparkles one-on-one with listeners and our partners."
