Former JOURNAL Top 40/Rhythmic WKHT/KNOXVILLE PD RUSS ALLEN jumps back into a programming post. ALLEN has been named PD at ALBANY BROADCASTING Top 40/Rhythmic WAJZ (JAMZ 96.3)/ALBANY. ALLEN succeeds former PD ROB "DE LATINO" RYAN left in MAY to be closer to family in COLORADO.
ALLEN, who starts at WAJZ on JULY 28th, commented on his new gig, telling ALL ACCESS, "I'm really looking forward to this new challenge and to working with ALBANY BROADCASTING's RVPP KEVIN CALLAHAN and the staff at JAMZ 96.3. I've been listening to the station for about three weeks and I can hear the passion the on-air staff has for what they do."
ALLEN added, "KEVIN told me I'd have to wash his car once a week, but PAIGE NIENABER has provided me with compromising photos of KEVIN CALLAHAN so that car washing thing ain't happening."
