CBS AAA KINK/PORTLAND has named DEAN KATTARI as APD/MD, effective JUNE 26. KATTARI replaces KEVIN WELCH, who moved to ENTERCOM AAA KMTT (THE MOUNTAIN)/SEATTLE (NET NEWS 4/24).
KATTARI most recently has been APD at ENTERCOM Country KBWF (95.7 THE WOLF)/SAN FRANCISCO. He has been overseeing the station’s recent transition from Adult Hits KMAX. His AAA track record includes programming at KOTR/SAN LUIS OPISBO, CA, KRSH/SAN ROSA, CA, and on-air at KFOG/S.F.
KINK PD DENNIS CONSTANTINE said, "I’m really impressed with DEAN’s skill set and his personality should fit in very well with the culture at KINK. He understands the station’s sensibilities, our 38-year commitment to the community and, of course, the music. He will be a great addition to the team."
"I'm very excited to return to my favorite kind of radio -- and return to the triple A community," enthused KATTARI. "I have great respect for DENNIS -- KINK is a perfect example of radio done right. I’ve long admired the station and am looking forward to contributing my part to KINK's future."
