December 5, 2016 at 9:40 AM (PT)
CBS RADIO Country KMLE/PHOENIX has named JEANA SHEPARD for nights, marking her return to the station in a full-time role. SHEPARD previously hosted middays on KMLE before segueing to a similar shift for Top 40 clustermate KALV in SEPTEMBER, while retaining a weekend slot on KMLE (NET NEWS 9/1).
“The KMLE nation has always been a big supporter of JEANA, and we’re excited to have her back on the station as our night host,” said CBS RADIO/PHOENIX VP/Programming TIM RICHARDS.
SHEPARD succeeds NATASHA CASTLES on KMLE evenings; CASTLES now joins the morning show on KALV (NET NEWS 12/5). “KMLE has always had a piece of my heart and it’s an awesome feeling to be coming back," said SHEPARD. "I never really ’left’ being on weekends, but being full-time again on KMLE is an incredible feeling.” SHEPARD will retain her midday shift on KALV in addition to her new role on KMLE.
