Chris Alan Named OM Of Powell's Panama City Stations
September 8, 2015 at 9:18 AM (PT)
POWELL BROADCASTING Top 40 WPFM (HOT 1079)/PANAMA CITY PD CHRIS ALAN adds OM duties for the four station cluster, which also includes Country WKNK, Adult Hits WASJ and Classic Rock WRBA. ALAN's expanded duties coincide with the exit of WKNK OM/PD/morning host DAVE FIELDS, who exits for an opportunity with TOWNSQUARE in the EVANSVILLE, IN market.
ALAN tells ALL ACCESS, "I will remain the PD for [WPFM] HOT 1079 and hold down the day-to-day duties for [WKNK] KICK’N 103.5 as interim PD. It is irony at its finest, as I have a long and successful history of working with Market Manager JEFF STOREY. JEFF and I met in SAVANNAH in 2001 when he was GM and I became PD for WAEV. We also teamed up again in 2007 at WILN in PANAMA CITY, and here we go again in 2015 with POWELL BROADCASTING PANAMA CITY. The first order of business is to find someone who lives and breathes morning radio to become the AM host for KICK’N 103.5. If you have the drive and desire to dominate mornings, then get your materials to me immediately at ChrisAlan@PowellBroadcasting.com."
