CLEAR CHANNEL Alternative KYSR (98-7fm)/LOS ANGELES elevates Programming Coordinator/MUSIC IN THE MORNINGS W/KENNEDY Producer DARREN ROSE to APD. Concurrently, 98-7fm afternooner JOSH VENABLE has been named MD.
Both JOSH AND DARREN have been with 98-7fm since the station flipped to Alternative in JANUARY of 2008.
KYSR PD JULIE PILAT said, "DARREN’s contribution to the station has been and will continue to be invaluable. Not only does he know and have passion for music and the format, but he has a head for marketing, sales and promotions as well. He’s a team player with a firm understanding of what’s needed to assist me in running the 98-7fm Programming Department."
"JOSH VENABLE has so much experience in the music industry and in this format specifically," stated PILAT. "He started at KDGE in DALLAS and has a legit talent for finding ‘the next big thing’ and developing artists through specialty programming. Not only does he host 98-7fm’s NEW MUSIC SHOW on SUNDAY nights, but for over a decade he’s been the brains, instinct and personality behind ‘THE ADVENTURE CLUB.’"
