CLEAR CHANNEL/HUDSON VALLEY, NY VP/Market Mgr. BRETT BESHORE, in concert with OM REGGIE OSTERHOUDT, names CHRIS MARINO to program Top 40 WPKF (KISS FM)/POUGHKEEPSIE.
Said BESHORE, "CHRIS is a highly talented broadcaster and we’re fortunate to have someone with his major-market background to steer the "KISS" ship. As you know, CHRIS’ resume includes time at Z100 NYC, Q102 PHILLY, Y100 MIAMI, WILD 95.5 in WEST PALM BEACH and KISS 95.7 in HARTFORD. With a super-strong personality lineup of ELVIS DURAN, RYAN SEACREST and CHRIS MARINO, and the right mix of mass-appeal hit-oriented Top 40 with a slight Dance/Rhythmic lean, we've got a great radio station to engage and entertain our listeners in the HUDSON VALLEY of NEW YORK."
Added MARINO, ""After taking time to add the experience of hosting a morning show for almost three years, it's fantastic to pick right up where I left off as a PD for CLEAR CHANNEL. We've got some of the most brilliant minds in radio on our team and I'm honored to be working with them to create top-notch entertainment for the listeners of 96-1 KISS-FM! I can't thank BRETT, REGGIE and the great staff at CCHV enough for their support. Please note my new office number is (845) 790-1755 and that I'll be taking music calls THURSDAYS from 12-2p."
