When you line up his talent and experience with the fact that this has always been his dream job, it's the perfect combination.
SHUFORD noted, "This is truly one of those opportunities that doesn't come around often - to program a radio station you grew up listening to. To be a part of 107.5 THE RIVER's huge presence and legacy in NASHVILLE is truly an honor. Thanks to MICHAEL BRYAN, (Market President) DAN ENDOM, and everyone on the NASHVILLE team for welcoming me into your family.
"I'd also like to thank (SVPP) JOHN IVEY, (SVPP) ALEX TEAR, and all the great programming minds at iHEARTMEDIA for the mentorship and guidance since my career began. It's hard to leave (iHEARTMEDIA/LOUISVILLE Dir./Ops) KELLY CARLS and the fantastic team in LOUISVILLE, but I'm excited for this next chapter in the MUSIC CITY!"
