As first hinted on ALL ACCESS (NET NEWS 1/3), FIRST BROADCASTING Group PD JOHN ROBERTS has been named PD of CBS RADIO Hot AC KIMN (MIX 100)/DENVER, effective JANUARY 29.
"I could not be more excited to have a great program director like JOHN ROBERTS join the staff to lead MIX 100 forward," says CBS RADIO/DENVER VP/Programming KEITH ABRAMS. "I have admired JOHN's work over the years and know he will bring the right elements to keep MIX successful in the market."
Before his stint with FIRST in DALLAS, ROBERTS spent 10 years as a VP/Programming for CLEAR CHANNEL, including eight years based in the AUSTIN cluster and as OM for the DALLAS cluster. He's also programmed WFQB/INDIANAPOLIS, WYSP/PHILADELPHIA, WBZZ/PITTSBURGH and WOMX/ORLANDO.
"I'm really looking forward to working for CBS RADIO in DENVER," ROBERTS says. "MIX 100 is in a great position in a very competitive AC battle. With DOM & JANE leading the morning wars, MIX has genuine opportunity to grow its position -- and that's my mission."
