Jolene Exits KISW
May 26, 2015 at 4:09 PM (PT)
After 11 years hosting nights on ENTERCOM Active Rock KISW (THE ROCK)/SEATTLE, MD JOLENE is leaving the station for new opportunities outside of radio. She leaves having created SEATTLE's top-rated nighttime show, bolstering the local music scene with Loud & Local, influencing the music of KISW, and guiding its social media presence.
JOLENE, who grew up in EASTERN WASHINGTON said, "During my time at KISW I poured my heart and soul into what I did. I loved it, cried for it, fought for it and lived for it. But now it's time for me to seek out new adventures. KISW is in magnificent hands, and I'm excited to see what happens next."
ENTERCOM SEATTLE VP/Programming DAVE RICHARDS who has worked with JOLENE since she started at KISW said, "JO came to us over 11 years ago from DES MOINES on the recommendation of childhood friend RYAN CASTLE. Starting at night, then to Assistant MD, then adding host of Loud & Local, then as MD and last year adding KISW Social Media Captain to her duties, no words can explain the dedication JOLENE has shown THE ROCK, and ENTERCOM/SEATTLE. Like a family member leaving the nest, she will be missed by one and all."
Her last day at KISW, dubbed JOLENE's Last Ride, will be this FRIDAY, MAY 29th from 6-10p (PT). Check out KISW.com for more info.
