Legendary radio programmer STEVE RIVERS is getting back into the programming game, as he has been named PD of CBS RADIO Top 40/Mainstream KBKS (KISS FM) SEATTLE, effective immediately.
Most recently, RIVERS was EVP and Pres./Programming for PYRAMID RADIO INC., but his lengthy resume also includes stints as SVP/Programming for CBS RADIO, radio editor and founding partner at MUSICBIZ, SVP/founding partner of RADIO CENTRAL, Chief Programming Officer at AM/FM, CHANCELLOR MEDIA, EVERGREEN MEDIA and PYRAMID BROADCASTING. Rivers has had hands-on programming success at stations such as WXKS/BOSTON, KIIS/LOS ANGELES and KMEL/SAN FRANCISCO.
"STEVE is a tremendous addition to CBS Radio and to 106.1 KISS FM," stated CBS/SEATTLE SVP/Market Manager DAVE MCDONALD. "It is our great fortune that he has missed radio programming and living in SEATTLE and has chosen to return to those two great loves by joining us. He’s been a terrific leader in the radio industry and brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the position."
