“We did an extensive search, spoke with a lot of very talented people and found that CHRIS’ knowledge of, and passion for Country music, along with his competitive drive and relentless commitment to success, made him the clear choice to take the helm,” said VP/GM PAT COLLINS.

His radio resume also includes KALC/DENVER and WGRL/INDIANAPOLIS. “THE WOLF has an incredibly talented staff, filled with creativity, energy and supported with amazing resources,” said CLARE. “I can’t wait to help lead something that is very special to begin with.” Send congrats here.
