July 2, 2007 at 5:24 PM (PT)
Former CUMULUS Country KPLX/DALLAS MD/midday personality MR. ED LAMBERT has joined BEND RADIO GROUP as OM at Country KSJJ and AC KMGX/BEND, OR.
LAMBERT, who has had programming stops at KHKS/DALLAS, WWWQ (Q100)/ATLANTA, KZZO and KWOD/SACRAMENTO, and WZEE/MADISON, replaces BOB McNEILL, who joined ENTERCOM Country KNTY (101.9 THE WOLF)/SACRAMENTO as PD.
VP JIM GROSS said, "ED and I worked together many years ago with BRIAN PHILLIPS at Top 40 KDWB in the TWIN CITIES. I'm so glad our broadcasting paths have crossed once again. I've always enjoyed ED as a person and respected his music and creative programming talents. ED's multi-format experience, including his great success at KHKS and Country KPLX (99.5 THE WOLF)/DALLAS, is going to prove an enormous asset to our growing company. BEND, OR is a fabulous place to live and work. I can't think of a better person or radio professional than ED LAMBERT to create great radio with. We're thrilled to welcome him to our team."
LAMBERT told ALL ACCESS, "I can't tell you how excited I am to be a part of the BEND RADIO GROUP and working with VP JIM GROSS again after all these years. I am the luckiest guy in the world, not only because I get to work with some great radio stations, but I get to work in one of the most beautiful places in the country. Snow-capped mountains, lakes and fresh air ... Ya gotta love it!"
