The latest addition to LARRY WILSON's ALPHA BROADCASTING is former CITADEL VP of Talk Programming BRIAN JENNINGS, who will rejoin his old CITADEL boss WILSON to head the new company's News-Talk and Sports stations. JENNINGS spent several years at ALPHA's Talk KXL-A/PORTLAND before moving to KVI-A/SEATTLE and then CITADEL, where he worked with WILSON and new ALPHA PORTLAND manager BOB PROFFITT.
Present KXL-A and Sports KXTG-A (95.5 THE GAME) PD JAMES DERBY is working with JENNINGS through the transition, and the company will be discussing new roles for DERBY within ALPHA.
JENNINGS tells ALL ACCESS, "It is very exciting to be back with LARRY and BOB who are committed to great radio and to being a great business partner in PORTLAND. I worked for LARRY and BOB for seven years before LARRY sold CITADEL to FORSTMANN LITTLE and look forward to this exciting opportunity they are developing."
