ENTERCOM AAA KBLV (99.7 THE BOULEVARD)/KANSAS CITY has flipped to an Adult Top 40 stance as KKSN (99.7 KISS-FM), under new PD JOHN COOK, who will also program Country WDAF (106.5 THE WOLF), replacing MICHAEL CRUISE. COOK, who most recently was PD at CBS Rocker WYSP/PHILADELPHIA, replaces GREG BERGEN at KBLV.
The new KKSN lineup has KIDD KRADDICK in mornings and RYAN SEACREST in afternoons, with ENTERCOM syndicated host KIM IVERSON doing nights. Middays are currently jockless.
ENTERCOM VP/Market Manager DAVID ALPERT commented about JOHN COOK, saying, "We are thrilled to add this exceptional talent line up and the Hot AC format to our already strong compilation of brands in our KANSAS CITY cluster. In searching for a program director we wanted someone who was competitive and innovative with a proven track record. We have found the perfect candidate."
COOK added, "I'm delighted to be joining the ENTERCOM/KANSAS CITY team and look forward to building two winning products. I want to thank ENTERCOM management for giving me this opportunity in KANSAS CITY."
