"CHRIS brings a wealth of skill and knowledge into our building," said Market Mgr. TOM ZLAKET. "He is a major-market talent who will make an immediate positive impact on three of our stations, and in doing so guide us to the next level of growth for our overall cluster. We are very fortunate to have him on our team."
"We could not be happier for this opportunity to work with CHRIS," OM TIM RICHARDS said. "His expertise spans formats and his reputation in the industry is unparalleled."
"I am so excited to be part of TOM and TIM's team. The opportunity to work with such an amazing group of people and be close to family and friends couldn't be passed up," said PATYK. "This is the city I was born, raised and started my career in. It's great to be back. And it's great to see the sun again after a couple of years in PORTLAND!"
