SHAMROCK COMMUNICATIONS Classic Rock WZBA (THE BAY)/BALTIMORE names HARVEY KOJAN as its new PD, effective APRIL 27th. He succeeds CRUZE, who's been handling programming duties at THE BAY on a part-time basis for several months.
KOJAN spent the last 16 years at SAGA Rocker WNOR/NORFOLK before being downsized on JANUARY 5th.
"After an exhaustive and very thorough search, I’m very pleased to announce that we finally got our man!," gushed SHAMROCK COO JEFF LAIRD. "HARVEY brings a ton of energy and a quirky sense of humor. In addition to his programming skills he’s an accomplished writer and producer, and also has expertise in website design, content generation, and database growth and maintenance."
KOJAN said, "My reputation precedes me, but JEFF ignored it and hired me anyway! "Seriously, I’m a darn lucky guy. We all know how scarce jobs are right now, and to be able to join a company like SHAMROCK in a city like BALTIMORE is just an amazing opportunity. SHAMROCK is family owned and operated and prides itself on still doing radio ‘the right way,’ which is particularly attractive to an old fart like me. Plus, I get to be reunited with my friends at JACOBS MEDIA, the best rock consultants in the business. It’s truly an ideal situation."
