GARETT MICHAELS has been appointed Director Of Rock Programming, overseeing the rock formats of Alternative XTRA-F (91X) and Classic Rock KFMB (100.7 KFM-BFM)/SAN DIEGO.
MICHAELS will continue his duties as PD of 100.7 KFM-BFM, as well as his afternoon air shift on the station. The move will allow MICHAELS to oversee 91X and once again team up with 91X PD MICHAEL HALLORAN.
“Given GARETT’s expertise in many genres and eras of rock, his personal success in Alternative, and his prior achievements teamed up with HALLORAN, he is the optimal person for the job,” said SDLOCAL VP/GM GREGG WOLFSON. “GARETT along with JOE LINDSAY, Director Of Operations And Programming SDLOCAL, form a dynamic programming team to lead the SDLOCAL five-station cluster.”
MICHAELS said, "I’m excited to expand my role with SDLOCAL. KFM-BFM is rocking again and 91X is one of the most iconic Alternative brands in radio. It’s an honor to be on the collaborative team charged with crafting the strategy and vision. Yes, HALLORAN and I have unfinished business to do in SAN DIEGO, it’s about time we put the band back together. Let’s rock!"
MICHAELS returned to SAN DIEGO last month, rebranding Adult Hits KFMB from JACK-FM to Rock as 100.7 KFMB-FM (NET NEWS 1/6).
