CHARLIE QUINN has resigned as PD at CBS RADIO Hot AC KYXY (96.5)/SAN DIEGO to devote more time and attention to his family in FLORIDA. CHRIS PATYK will now oversee both Top 40 KEGY (ENERGY 103.7) and KYXY, with MARK BLACKWELL taking on a greater role in the day-to-day programming of the station, according to SVP Market Manager BOB BOLINGER.
"For the past 16 years, CHARLIE has been our leader in stewarding and evolving the KYXY brand," commented BOLINGER. "He has been a terrific strategist, coach and most of all friend. All with tremendous effort, enthusiasm and class. Please join me in thanking CHARLIE for all he has done for us and CBS/SAN DIEGO."
"It’s rare in our business to spend 15 years at the same station cluster," QUINN wrote. "For me it’s been some of the best years of my life. Much of that is due to the people here who’ve been more than co-workers to me. People make our lives richer and while there are too many of you to mention here, I’ve been very lucky.
"At present I need to address my family’s health and wellbeing in FLORIDA and at some point look forward to exploring new opportunities. My sincere thanks to BOB and CBS RADIO for their support in the transition.
Instead of goodbye, let’s instead look forward to the next time we’ll say hello."
