EMMIS Urban AC WRKS (98.7 KISS FM)/NEW YORK has named sister Top 40/Rhythmic WQHT (HOT 97) Programmer EBRO DARDEN as PD. DARDEN's double-duty absorbs the programming previously handled by TOYA BEASLEY, who exited last JUNE (NET NEWS 6/21/2007).
WRKS MD JULIE GUSTINES is promoted to APD/MD.
The appointment also ends speculation that VINNIE BROWN, who exited ICBC Urban WBLS/NEW YORK on MONDAY (NET NEWS 1/28), might return to the station he programmed from 1988-1998.
