JOURNAL BROADCAST GROUP Classic Rock KKCD (CD 105.9)/OMAHA PD KURT OWENS slides over to sister Hot AC KSRZ (STAR 104.5) as PD replacing J. PAT MILLER who recently exited for the PD position at WLWK (94.5 THE LAKE)/MILWAUKEE (NET NEWS 12/5).
Sister Rock KEZO-A (Z-92) PD JIM SPECTOR adds oversight of CD 105.9 to his duties; OWENS continues to oversee Sports KXSP-A (BIG SPORTS 590).
"KURT OWENS put STAR on the air," noted OM MARK TODD. "He knows the station, people and systems that will ensure we won’t miss a beat with this very important station. Having JIM SPECTOR guide our two rock products creates an internal synergy that makes sense and will ensure that the future path of each station is successful."
VP/GM ROB BURTON added, "These are two guys who have my utmost confidence in getting the job done and I know they each have the ability to bring out the best in these products."
OWENS said, "It’s great to come back to a station I helped launch and especially one that has been so successful. I’ve watched STAR 104.5 flourish and it will be fun to get back to building on that success."
SPECTOR said, "I am completely excited to now guide the two premiere rock stations in Omaha! Great success is ahead for both Z-92 and CD 105.9 because they will continue to help each other be in position to achieve."
