KHPO Flips To Country Under PD Brian Montgomery
April 9, 2007 at 6:59 AM (PT)
As first tipped by ALL ACCESS, former BUCKLEY KUBB/MERCED APD/MD/afternooner, BRIAN MONTGOMERY has crossed town to MAPLETON COMMUNICATIONS KHPO to become PD, and has flipped the format from Classic Hits (HIPPO 106.3) to Country under the new moniker, HANK 106.3 FM.
MONTGOMERY tells ALL ACCESS that the format flip occurred on SATURDAY (4/7) about 4p (PT), with WILLIE NELSON's classic, "My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys."
MONTGOMERY is returning home to MAPLETON. He started his career at Rock KBRE/MERCED, and is re-uniting with SVP ANDREW ADAMS and Sales Managers DAMIEN GALARZA and CHAD GAMMAGE.
MONTGOMERY will take on the morning show as well as his PD duties. Other lineup additions should be announced this week. Contact MONTGOMERY regarding music times at firstname.lastname@example.org.
