CLEAR CHANNEL/LOS ANGELES Market President GREG ASHLOCK has announced that CC/L.A. VP/Programming MICHAEL MARTIN will add the PD duties at Modern AC KYSR (STAR 98.7), and will maintain his current responsibilities as VP/Programming for the LOS ANGELES cluster of radio stations. He's replacing current STAR 98.7 PD CHARESE FRUGE.
Concurrently, MARTIN announced that sister Top 40 KIIS-FM APD/MD JULIE PILAT will add those same duties at STAR 98.7. MARTIN told ALL ACCESS, "I'm getting back into what I truly love and that's programming a radio station day-to-day. Exciting things are on the way at STAR 98.7, including JULIE. Her musical knowledge and passion goes far beyond one format. Ask her about Alternative and Rock and watch her light up with excitement. She's an expert in the market, a non-stop idea machine, who knows how to build a brand, has excellent relationships and loves a good old-fashioned battle. Let's go."
JULIE added, "It’s been five years (to the day) since I first moved to L.A. from SEATTLE. It's been an amazing ride working with JOHN IVEY, EILEEN WOODBURY, GREG ASHLOCK and MICHAEL MARTIN to take KIIS to #1." She continued, "I’m excited to continue the momentum in L.A. at KIIS, while also having the opportunity at STAR 98.7 to embrace the artists, music and scene I grew up loving in SEATTLE. We’re going to have some fun."
