Smooth Jazz consultant and programmer MAXINE TODD has joined the management team at RIVIERA BROADCAST GROUP Smooth Jazz KOAS (105.7 THE OASIS)/LAS VEGAS as consultant in charge of music. Most recently Dir./Programming at CBS Radio Smooth Jazz KHJZ/HOUSTON, TODD has held programming and operations management, as well as radio consultancy posts in various formats in DALLAS, NORFOLK and MEMPHIS.
"I am thrilled to be back on DAVE’s team and to be working with DUNCAN PAYTON and BROADCAST ARCHITECTURE in growing KOAS," TODD said. "DUNCAN has done a lot of work on some strategic areas in a short time that has elevated KOAS already. DAVE, TIM (POHLMAN) and CHRIS (MAGUIRE) are some of radio’s finest operators and have assembled a world class team at RBG. In a short time they have built an outstanding and highly respected radio company who care about growing successful people and radio stations that I'm excited to be a part of."
"It’s humbling to me to see the quality of new team members that RIVIERA BROADCAST GROUP has added to The OASIS," OM/PD DUNCAN PAYTON said. "MAXINE is one of the most respected broadcast consultants in the industry. Her attention to detail is impeccable, and her track record of success speaks for itself. She’s an amazing resource and we're happy to welcome her to our team."
"It’s an honor to be a part of the team that RIVIERA BROADCAST GROUP has assembled at Smooth Jazz 105.7 The OASIS this year," VP/Market Manager DAVE PRESHER added. "I worked previously with MAXINE and I'm confident that her skills, knowledge, and expertise will help us continue building the finest Smooth Jazz station in AMERICA right here in LAS VEGAS."
TODD will assume the music duties that were previously handled by midday LYNN BRIGGS, who will now concentrate on her air shift.
