Staff Shakeup At Peak/Boise Continues
November 27, 2007 at 5:41 AM (PT)
More talent changes at PEAK BROADCASTING/BOISE -- as BRIAN "THE BIRD" exits KAWO (WOW COUNTRY 104.3), reports IDAHORADIONEWS. BRIAN started with KAWO as evening host before sliding into the AM show producer job. (He also did weekends on KTMY before the station was rebranded under the WOW COUNTRY name).
This is the third on-air staff cut at PEAK in the past week.
A memo obtained by IDAHO RADIO NEWS written by PEAK/BOISE SVP KEVIN GODWIN says the decision to let go AC KXLT middayer MELISSA DAWN and fellow staffer GREG WILLIAMSON the day before THANKSGIVING was made after "months of thought and consideration." GODWIN’s note says DAWN and WILLIAMSON are "both terrific people and this was a very difficult decision." He also said that if "given the opportunity, would hope to have them back at PEAK BROADCASTING."
KXLT’s morning show will remain in place, but the station will focus on "more music at work."
Along with the move to morning traffic anchor, TOBIN JEFFRIES will no longer hold the title of PD for KXLT. Current KCIX (MIX 106) PD BRENT CAREY will take over that role, with JEFFRIES acting as APD for KXLT, as well as network OM for the traffic group.
