ENTERCOM Classic Hits KQMT (99.5 THE MOUNTAIN)/DENVER has shuffled its on-air lineup. Out is morning man ARCHER, with MD/middayer MIKE CASEY moving to 6a-noon and night host ROBBIE KNIGHT moving to noon-4p. Twenty-five-year vet PETE MACKAY will continue to host the drive home from 4-8p, with PD BEAU RAINES knocking out 8p-midnight.
"Promoting MIKE CASEY and ROBBIE KNIGHT to more prominent positions on THE MOUNTAIN is another important step in the evolution of 99.5 from a niche, eclectic format to a more accessible mass appeal radio station," said PD BEAU RAINES. "We're starting to reap the benefits of our unique Album Rock approach fueled by listening to our DENVER audience's feedback! We've always been involved in a diverse collection of DENVER charities and our local music scene, and now, with the addition of our commercial-free (9a-noon), and the no repeat workweek, we've eliminated some of the negatives that listeners mention frequently about traditional radio formats. More daytime hours with MIKE and ROBBIE are the latest parts of our evolution."
