RADIO ONE has named AL PAYNE to the PD position for Urban WKYS (93.9KISS)/WASHINGTON. PAYNE had been format captain for RADIO-ONE’s DETROIT cluster which includes Urban WHTD, Urban AC WDMK and BlackGospel/Talk WCHB. In addition, PAYNE will have the responsibility for the syndicated RUSS PARR MORNING SHOW, which originates from WKYS’ studios.
The WKYS PD position had remained vacant since former PD STEVE HEGWOOD left last year. HEGWOOD is now heading up programming for RADIO ONE's ATLANTA cluster. No decision has been made on a replacement for PAYNE in DETROIT.
