The other shoe drops in TOM LEE's departure from CBS Sports WIP-A/PHILADELPHIA, as he gets the nod as PD at ESPN Sports KESN (ESPN 103.3 FM)/DALLAS-FORT WORTH. He replaces JOHN LUND, who is returning to SALT LAKE CITY as co-host in mornings at SIMMONS Sports KZNS-A (1280 THE ZONE) with HANS OLSEN. LEE, the former FOX SPORTS RADIO PD and KJR-A/SEATTLE PD, will also oversee the launch of ESPN DEPORTES on KNIT-A.
"We are thrilled to have TOM on board," says KESN GM PETE DITS. "His extensive experience as a major market program director at a station like WIP, having programmed a major radio network, and the work he has done with sports franchises are all qualities we were looking for in our next program director. TOM is a perfect fit for an ESPN owned and operated station such as ours where we have extensive local programming and are the flagship station of the DALLAS MAVERICKS."
