WINE COUNTRY BROADCASTING AC KVYN (99.3 THE VINE)/SAINT HELENA-NAPA, CA has hired BIG RICK STUART to do middays (10a-3p), starting MONDAY, APRIL 25th.
BIG RICK grew up in THE BAY AREA and worked at THE QUAKE in the '80s, LIVE 105 for 14 years until 2000, then KFOG until 2010. BIG RICK moved on to KFOX/SAN JOSE for the last five years, including time with then-PD and current VINE GM LARRY SHARP.
“To have a jock of RICK’s caliber on 99.3 THE VINE is a dream come true," GM LARRY SHARP said. "RICK and I met years ago and he was part of my team at KFOX. He is a down-to-earth, locally oriented person. What a great addition to an already strong lineup at THE VINE!”
"Big city radio isn't geared to serving local communities like THE VINE," STUART said. "That is a huge appeal to me about what I will be doing. So many groups do so much here for others. I recently did the Cycle For Sight bicycle ride for the 4th year -- and that's just one example of what others do for each other here. The commitment to the community is strong. I couldn't think of a better place to be on the radio!"
