CITADEL/ALBUQUERQUE Ops Dir. KRIS ABRAMS is leaving after a six-year run to become the new PD at CBS Oldies KOOL (KOOL FM)/PHOENIX. ABRAMS previously programmed Oldies in MILWAUKEE, GREENSBORO and VIRGINIA BEACH, with other programming stops in CHARLOTTE and JACKSONVILLE.
Said ABRAMS, "The staffs of KOB and KMGA have worked hard to put these stations at their strongest spot in years. KOB has been top three 18-34 and MAGIC top five 25-54 for nearly two years. JUDY ELLIS, MILT MCCONNELL and EDDIE HASKELL create a great environment, and these stations have thrived because of it. The opportunity to team up with great strategists like BRIAN ONGARO, GREG STRASSELL and GM MARK WATERS on a heritage property like KOOL-FM is one of the great radio scenarios in our business. Radio brands don't get stronger than the relationship KOOL has with listeners in PHOENIX, and CBS is committed to keeping it a top tier player in the market for years to come."
ABRAMS' first day on the job in PHOENIX is MARCH 12.
