Whalen Named MD at KHMX

Congratulations are in order for JOHN WHALEN at CLEAR CHANNEL Hot Adult KHMX/HOUSTON. This week, PD and stern taskmaster KEITH SCOTT promoted him to MD, a position JOHN been holding down since early this year.
SCOTT tells ALL ACCESS, “JOHN has successfully mastered all the key phrases: ‘it’s in the hunt,’ ‘we’ll need a bigger story’ and ‘I’ll bring it to KEITH’S attention in the next meeting.’ Not only that, he shields me from all the reps, and knows exactly how I like my coffee. He has earned the right to be MD. Should he survive the rest of the year, then he will have earned the right to be paid like one. I keed! I keed!”
When asked how he feels about his official position, JOHN replied “Hostile and uncooperative. It took me a while to realize the calls were from record people and not telemarketers.”
