iHEARTMEDIA/SEATTLE has named JUSTIN RILEY PD for Top 40 KPWK (POWER 93.3) and Hot AC KBKS (106.1 KISS-FM). Most recently, RILEY was the PD for Z100 and JAM’N 107.5 in PORTLAND, OR.
“I am beyond thrilled that iHEARTMEDIA has asked me to take on the responsibility of leading these two exciting new brands in Seattle,” RILEY said. “As a northwest native, it has always been a dream of mine to program in the EMERALD CITY. And as a lifelong SEAHAWKS fan, I’m excited to add my talents to that of the insane 12th Man! Many thanks to ANDREW JEFFRIES, ROBERT DOVE, KENT HAEHL and RICH MOORE for this incredible opportunity.”
“With our brand realignment in SEATTLE earlier this year, isolating the right programmer to lead POWER 93.3 and 106.1 KISS-FM into this bright new future is critical - JUSTIN RILEY was an obvious choice to move these two brands forward here in SEATTLE and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome him to the team,” iHEARTMEDIA/SEATTLE SVP/Programming RICH MOORE said. “His knowledge, experience, leadership and connections for these formats will have a big impact.”
