CLEAR CHANNEL and KIOI (STAR 101.3)/SAN FRANCISCO PD CASEY KEATING have parted ways. Replacing him is longtime KIOI APD/MD JAMES BAKER, who joined the station exactly four year ago today (1/3).
SVPP MICHAEL MARTIN said, "JAMES is experienced, creative, and talented -- and he knows the station, the market and our listeners inside and out. We are lucky to have him on our team, and excited to have him take the wheel to drive STAR to its next great levels."
RVP/Market Mgr. KIM BRYAN noted, "When you have someone within your station with so much passion and dedication, it gives us great confidence in our ability to further the station's upward growth. No one knows our listeners as well as JAMES, and the rest of the station's staff know him, respect him and support his vision."
BAKER told ALL ACCESS, "I am excited to work with the best from VP/Market Mgr. & GM KIM BRYANT, SVPRP MICHAEL MARTIN, and a dreamteam airstaff with DON BLEU, SYLVIA CHACON, and LARA SCOTT! 2006 is going to be an amazing year!"
