Former FINEST CITY BROADCASTING Alternative XTRA-F (91X)/SAN DIEGO PD PHIL MANNING wasn't idle long. TODAY (12/3), BONNEVILLE Adult Hits KPKX (98.7 THE PEAK)/PHOENIX announced that long-time radio veteran PHIL MANNING will fill the station's vacant PD post beginning DECEMBER 10th. MANNING was a victim of budget cuts at 91X just over a month ago (NET NEWS 10/28).
BONNEVILLE/PHOENIX VP/Market Mgr. SCOTT SUTHERLAND said, "Over the past few months, I’ve searched the country to find a programming leader to re-write the next chapter of THE PEAK. Following that long search, I was very pleased to find PHIL, and I believe he is the perfect person to create THE PEAK version 2.0 and work with our very talented programming team."
"I’m highly thrilled," MANNING said, "to be joining BONNEVILLE and to have the opportunity to return 98.7 THE PEAK to its rightful ratings position and to use the platform to make a difference in the community. I also am grateful to SCOTT SUTHERLAND and GREG SOLK (VP/Programming) and look forward to working side by side with them and the entire PHOENIX team."
