BEASLEY MEDIA WBRN (98.7 NO RULES ROCK)/TAMPA has tapped sister Active Rock WRXK (96 K ROCK)/FT. MYERS PD JEFF ZITO as its new Programmer. His first day will be MONDAY, JUNE 20th.
“JEFF ZITO is a perfect fit for 98.7 NO RULES ROCK,” said OM TEE GENTRY. “He has proven himself as a winning PD at 96 K-ROCK with BEASLEY in FT MYERS and we are excited to have him here in TAMPA BAY!”
“I've done sports talk at WHFS (now WBRN)/TAMPA, and I’ve done radio in MIAMI,” said ZITO. “But, I went back to work in FT MYERS, and eventually came over to K-ROCK at WRXK, where I enjoyed serving as midday announcer/PD. Now, I’m ready to move on up the coast to BEASLEY’s TAMPA cluster to work for WBRN and 98.7 NO RULES ROCK!”
“We are all very happy for JEFF ZITO,” added FORT MYERS OM ADAM STAR. “He’s made a significant impact as PD of WRXK and he’ll be missed. ZITO is successful because he passionately lives the lifestyle, and he’s a team player. I have no doubt JEFF ZITO’s skills absolutely led us to our monster ratings!”
The move means BEASLEY is actively searching for a new PD to lead WRXK into the future. Applicants may send packages to FortMyersProgrammingJobs@bbgi.com.
