April 3, 2008 at 1:43 PM (PT)
After eight years at CBS Top 40 KBKS 106.1 KISS-FM)/SEATTLE, APD/afternoon-drive personality MARCUS D. NAJERA is headed to sister Hot AC KLLC (RADIO ALICE@97.3)/SAN FRANCISCO as APD/afternoon drive as well, beginning MONDAY (4/7).
MARCUS told ALL ACCESS, "I had an unbelievable time working with everyone at KBKS and I wish them nothing but continued success. I want to thank my SVP/Market Manager LISA DECKER, PD STEVE RIVERS and the entire staff for their friendship and support through the years. I would also like to thank CBS Radio/SF SVP/Market Manager DOUG HARVIL, VP/GM GREG NEMITZ and my long-time sensei VP/Programming MIKE PRESTON for the opportunity to return home to do radio in a city I love, at a station I’ve been a fan of since it signed on. ALICE is a phenomenal brand; I can’t wait to get started!"
PRESTON noted, "MARCUS will be a key part of the programming team, along with APD/MD JAYN. In addition to supporting JAYN's daily efforts on the music programming and relationship front, he’ll focus on helping develop the image and branding of ALICE; talent development of air staff members, streaming and HD side channels, and of course, day-to-day programming operations. He’ll bring with him a passion for the music we play and a love for the station."
Back at KBKS, in the interim, MD/night player ERIC TYLER will move to afternoons, and an opening, either nights or afternoons, will be available with additional programming duties a possibility.
