Former JONES RADIO NETROWKS, METRO NETWORKS, and SOVEREIGN CITY COMMUNICATIONS affiliate relations executive PHIL STRIDER has joined the TOM KENT RADIO NETWORK as VP/Affiliate Relations. STRIDER has served as Regional Manager for JONES, VP/Regional Operations Director for METRO, and VP/Affiliate Relations for SOVEREIGN CITY.
TKRN President TOM KENT said, "To have someone of the caliber of PHIL STRIDER join our ever growing team of excellent broadcast pros says one thing... the good ones always rise to the top and PHIL is the cream of the crop! I think I’m about go back to my screaming days on the radio because having PHIL on our team makes me want to scream. PHIL is the ROY HOBBS of affiliate relations. I know he will take his wonder boy affiliate bat and knock the cover off the ball!"
STRIDER added, "I have been in the business long enough to recognize a great show when I hear one, and TOM KENT delivers fun high energy, high quality personality radio on all three of his shows. It is a pleasure to be associated with the TOM KENT RADIO NETWORK! I look forward to working with him to continue to take TKRN to the next level! The fact that he admitted that the INDIANS robbed the MARINERS in the '95 AL championship series is just icing on the cake."
