IHEARTMEDIA MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL Dir./Promotions MATT TELL is adding duties as PD at Classic Hits KQQL (KOOL 108). TELL, who has been with the cluster for 19 years, has been serving as APD of KOOL; he will also continue to be Dir./Promotions for iHEARTMEDIA’s nine local brands, while taking full responsibility for KQQL.
“I’m excited and honored to have this opportunity,” said TELL. “I’m a MINNESOTA boy, so KOOL 108 is a great fit for me and my family. I love how KOOL 108’s music is FUN and I’m lucky to be surrounded by great talent on and off the air here at iHEARTMEDIA. We’re going to continue to provide great marketing solutions for our clients and build even stronger partnerships in the community. Lots more good things to come.”
“I’m so glad we are making this move with MATT," iHEARTMEDIA/MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL SVP/Programming GREGG SWEDBERG stated. "He has done everything we’ve ever asked him to do here, and much of the ratings success for KQQL in the last year is MATT’s doing. There’s nobody I would rather have with me in the bunker, and no more loyal and dedicated worker. I’m glad he’s on our side.”
