TOM NANKIVAL has been named Market Manager for ADAMS RADIO/LAS CRUCES, NM, which owns and operates Country KGRT-F (103.9), Classic Hits KSNM-F (CLASSIC HITS 98.7), Top 40 KHQT-F (HOT 103) and Sports KWML-A (FOX SPORTS 570 THE TICKET). He begins his new duties on MAY 11th.
NANKIVAL worked at WKOW-TV in MADISON, WI, for five years in sales before joining LA CROSSE RADIO GROUP in as Dir./Sales five years ago. He is a veteran radio programmer having held PD and OM positions as well as being a highly rated drivetime personality in DUBUQUE, CEDAR RAPIDS/IOWA CITY, SAGINAW, MADISON and MILWAUKEE before moving into sales.
“Our search for the kind of sales leadership TOM brings has been extensive," ADAMS RADIO CEO RON STONE said. "He is all about results and not afraid to dig in and 'get busy with the troops,' which is a rare asset these days. His hands-on approach and belief in traditional radio is what has been missing in LAS CRUCES. We have great products here ... and TOM is a manager who knows how to sell them.”
“I could not be more thrilled and proud to be chosen to lead ADAMS RADIO GROUP’s cluster in LAS CRUCES," NANKIVAL said. "ADAMS is a company with a notable radio past, and an exceedingly bright future. RON STONE has assembled an impressive group of stations and impressive people to lead them. Very happy to be on the team.”
