EMMIS Top 40/Rhythmic KKFR (POWER 92.3)/PHOENIX PD BRUCE ST. JAMES has been busy lately. ST. JAMES recently revamped his morning show, moving THE NUTZ (J PHILLA & JOEY BOY) from afternoons to mornings replacing MG'S MORNING MADHOUSE. THE NUTZ had been Co-Music Directors. Their move to mornings brings some changes in KKFR's programming department. Effective immediately, midday star KARLIE HUSTLE will serve as APD and mixer DJ MIKEE MIKE assumes the MD role.
ST. JAMES commented, "KARLIE brings a tremendous amount of energy, enthusiasm and intelligence to the programming team. Her years of radio experience have proved invaluable already and with this new position she can contribute even more." About DJ MIKEE MIKE, ST. JAMES added, "MIKEE has been a valued member of the Power 92.3 team for years. He has grown from Promotions, to mixing and now Music Director. This promotion also continues the fine tradition of EMMIS hiring the COQUIA family. For those that don't know, DJ MIKEE MIKE is the younger (yet taller) brother of KPWR (POWER 106)/LOS ANGELES APD/MD E-MAN and POWER 106 mixer DJ VIRMAN. Currently, there are no plans to hire MIKEE's two children, JASON & JASMINE, but it's still early in 2006."
CHARLIE HUERO continues as KKFR Director of Marketing and STEPHANIE LOWE remains KKFR's Programming Assistant.
