ZACH TAYLOR has been appointed PD of BEASLEY Gospel WGUS-F/AUGUSTA, which recently flipped from Oldies WGOR and is a simulcast of sister WGUS-A. TAYLOR has been with BEASLEY for nine years and moves over from the APD/MD posts at Country clustermate WKXC (KICKS 99).
Said BEASLEY/AUGUSTA VP/Market Manager KENT DUNN, "We're proud to welcome ZACH TAYLOR to WGUS FM as PD. His track record as MD of BEASLEY's KICKS 99 makes him a great choice to program AUGUSTA's new Southern Gospel station. The success of this format on BEASLEY's 1480 AM WGUS has shown us the community's appreciation for Southern Gospel music, and we're delighted to have someone with ZACH's knowledge and expertise as the PD for WGUS-FM."
TAYLOR began his radio career at age 13, handling local weekend football broadcasts and SUNDAY morning gospel programming on a 500-watt AM station in his hometown of CARROLTON, GA and by age 15 had been named MD/afternoon driver. He joined KICKS 99 in 1997.
"It's as though I've come full circle from my early days of gospel programming," TAYLOR said. "I am very excited about programming 102.7 WGUS-FM. Everyone involved can be proud of bringing Southern Gospel music to FM radio in AUGUSTA."
