CITADEL Active Rock WEDG (ROCK RADIO 103.3 THE EDGE)/BUFFALO ups MD/morning show producer JIM KURDZIEL (aka EVIL JIM) to PD. EVIL JIM replaces KERRY GRAY, who departed the station a few months ago.
CITADEL/BUFFALO GM CHET OSADCHEY said, "JIM is a great success story for `growing your people.' He came aboard in 2000 doing part-time engineering and moved into promotions and assistant to the SHREDD AND RAGAN MORNING SHOW."
He added, "JIM is a tremendously talented member of our team and I hope you join me in congratulating him on this exciting new career move."
"For the last three months, JIM has demonstrated his ability to manage and execute a strategy that we believe will continue to grow THE EDGE as it enters its eleventh year as BUFFALO’s Rock station," commented OM JOHN HAGER. "It’s inspiring to find that there are still some young professionals who want to make radio and radio programming a career. JIM has proven himself through hard work and dedication to THE EDGE, and is a great addition to our BUFFALO programming team."
