Changes at BRISTOL Top 40 WAEZ (ELECTRIC 94.9)/JOHNSON CITY, as PD GARY BLAKE exits for an ownership opportunity.
"I have been offered the opportunity to buy into a local station in my hometown of MARION, VA, and it's a deal I can't pass up," he said. "JASON REED has been named PD for WAEZ, and it's not only a good deal for him but the station as well. He's a smart radio person and, better than that, a good guy! With BILL HAGY in the next office and the incredible staff at WAEZ, he can't help but do well."
REED tells ALL ACCESS, "I wish GARY the best of luck in his new gig. It's definitely going to be strange not having him around. He's a great guy! I'm stoked to be taking on the PD role here, and working alongside BILL HAGY is going to be a blast! I'm lucky -- I'm getting handed an incredible staff at one of the few locally owned companys that are still around. It's gonna be fun!"
