CLEAR CHANNEL/TULSA Dir./Programming CHASE has resigned and has joined EMMIS/AUSTIN as FM Operations Mgr. overseeing Top 40/Rhythmic KDHT (HOT 93.3), Rocker KLBJ, Alternative KROX, Adult Hits KBPA (103 BOB-FM), and AAA KGSR. In addition, CHASE will be PD at HOT 93.3.
EMMIS/AUSTIN VP/Market Mgr. SCOTT GILMORE told ALL ACCESS, "I was very impressed with CHASE from the beginning. He gets the science and creativity of programming and also understands the importance of the people side to our business. I am happy to have him as part of our team. One of his first duties will be to fill the PD openings at KLBJ and KBPA. It could even be one person handling both positions."
CHASE remarked to ALL ACCESS, "CLEAR CHANNEL has been an awesome company, and over the past six years with them it's been a a real pleasure to learn and grow. However, SCOTT GILMORE and [EMMIS VP/Programming] JIMMY STEAL have made this a great opportunity. In fact, it's the opportunity of a lifetime for me. My last day here is NOVEMBER 17th, and I begin on NOVEMBER 27th, and I can't wait to get going."
