ALPHA MEDIA/LOUISVILLE has upped current morning show host and PD of Top 40 WDJX, BEN DAVIS, to OM for the five-station cluster which includes Urban WGZB, Top 40 WDJX, Urban AC WMJM, Hot AC WXMA and Urban Oldies WGHL. DAVIS has been at WDJX since 2003, where he started as the Night Show host. In 2008, he was promoted to morning host of “The BEN DAVIS & KELLY K Show,” and later that year elevated to PD.
ALPHA MEDIA SVP/Market Manager DALE SCHAEFER said, “BEN DAVIS has been an incredible leader for our cluster for many years as our Program Director and morning show host for WDJX. With this promotion, he will be able to expand his leadership role to all five of our stations and help each one reach their full potential. Our entire staff is thrilled about Ben’s promotion and look forward to working with him to make each station a greater success than what it has already achieved.”
“BEN is one of those rare triple threats; he’s great on the air, a fantastic manager and wonderful with clients. It is very rewarding to be able to promote from within ALPHA and, BEN is a respected passionate leader who is beyond ready to help guide our LOUISVILLE cluster to the very tippy top. Go BEN!” added EVP/Programming SCOTT MAHALICK.
DAVIS remarked, “I’m excited at the opportunity given to me by ALPHA MEDIA to grow our 5 amazing and diverse brands here in LOUISVILLE! I can't wait to get working with our dynamic team and look forward to growing our reach in 2015 and beyond. I need to thank DALE SCHAEFER, PHIL BECKER, SCOTT MAHALICK and BILL MCELVEEN for this amazing opportunity!”
With DAVIS' promotion to OM, ALPHA MEDIA has begun an immediate search to find a high-energy, experienced Top 40 PD/Afternoon Drive Personality. While BEN will continue to host the “BEN AND KELLY MORNING SHOW” each day on WDJX, he will turn over the day-to-day Program Director responsibilities for WDJX to this new candidate so he can focus his off-air time and energy to leading and strengthening all five of the stations in the cluster. Any interested PD candidate should send their resume and air-check to BEN DAVIS at Ben.Davis@AlphaMediaUSA.com.
