TEAR added, “I’m thrilled to be a part of the CLEAR CHANNEL programming culture. In a short 2 years, 96.1 KISS has become a market leader with a strong foundation. I look forward to working closely with SVP/Programming GENE ROMANO, RVP JOHN ROHM and the entire 96.1 KISS team, including some of the best next generation talent in the country with morning guys MIKEY and BIG BOB, SCOTTY in afternoons and BONICS at night. The CLEAR CHANNEL resources that support and surround 96.1 KISS are endless; I’m looking forward to a long Kiss.”
