Radio veteran GARY WRIGHT has been named Dir./Radio Broadcast Activities for WKCC Radio at KANKAKEE COMMUNITY COLLEGE in KANKAKEE, IL. He was previously GM of NEWSWEB CORP. News WKIF in suburban CHICAGO and has also been a GM for NRG in OTTAWA, IL and VP/GM of STARadio CORP. in KANKAKEE.
"I'm looking forward to what we can do with this station," said WRIGHT. "It's a full class A and has never been programmed to reach a general audience. There's a huge hole in the coverage of public radio in this area, and the Board of Trustees for the college is committing the budget to allow us to succeed. We expect to have our new programming set to go within the next 60 days and will include NPR, classical music and locally produced shows featuring blues, jazz and other music genres that fit a public station."
