Former DB Top 40 WKZL/GREENSBORO APD/middayer MIKE KLEIN has joined CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 WBVD (KISS 95.1)/MELBOURNE, FL, as PD/afternoons, effective next week (11/14). He's replacing MICHAEL BRYAN, who gave up those duties to turn his full attention to his responsibilies as PD at WXXL (XL 106.7)/ORLANDO and CC Regional Dir./Interactive.
BRYAN told ALL ACCESS, "Against my better judgement, and his inability to spell and to learn how to use 'spellcheck,' KLEIN's the right guy for the job. He knows programming and sounds great on the air, too. I love his passion for radio and programming, and he'd never have gotten on the air at Z100/NEW YORK or HOT 99.5/DC if he sucked. I think he'll set a platinum standard for his air staff to emulate."
CC/MELBOURNE OM KEN HOLIDAY added, "MIKE is a very strong on-air talent and brings incredible passion for programming, has a strong creative side for promotions and knows his music. We're confident he'll help KISS succeed as we move into 2008."
KLEIN commented to ALL ACCESS, "I want to say thanks to Z100/NY PD SHARON DASTUR, SVPP TOM POLEMAN for their belief in me to do weekend/swing, through JANUARY, and to CC/DC OM JEFF KAPUGI for all the airtime in my hometown, too. This is going to be a great adventure for me at KISS 95.1 and I'm thrilled to work with MICHAEL BRYAN again, and OM KEN HOLIDAY. I'm going to do all I can to ensure that KISS 95.1 is a winner all the way around."
