JOURNAL Alternative KQXR (100.3 THE X)/BOISE, ID hires JEREMY NICOLATO for PD/mornings replacing MAT "DIABLO" BATES, who exited JUNE 29th (NET NEWS 6/29) to become PD at SLACKER.COM.
NICOLATO arrives from RIVIERA BROADCAST GROUP Alternative KEDJ (THE EDGE 103.9)/PHOENIX, where he was doing part-time on-air work. He started today at KQXR.
JOURNAL/BOISE OM DAN McCOLLY said, "JEREMY’s checkered past includes work at THE EDGE and THE ZONE in PHOENIX; KWOD in SACRAMENTO, and time in WEST PALM. He’s done mornings, been APD and MD; this will be his first at-bat as a full-fledged PD (He’ll also co-host mornings for us).
"JEREMY’s insightful, inventive and enthusiastic. He’s been exposed to -- and part of -- great radio in a number of environments and a couple of formats. Add his "knows what it takes to win" background in mornings, and he’s the ideal candidate to step into the leadership role for KQXR."
