JOURNAL BROADCAST GROUP Country KVOO/TULSA will welcome SKIP MAHAFFEY to the morning show, joining co-host SUNNY LEIGH, on MAY 20th. SKIP replaces GARY GREENWOOD, who exited last DECEMBER (NET NEWS 2/23).
SKIP previously did mornings at CLEAR CHANNEL Country WFUS/TAMPA, with prior stops at crosstown CBS Country WQYK, CLEAR CHANNEL Country WCOL/COLUMBUS, OH and LINCOLN FINANCIAL Country KSON/SAN DIEGO, to name a few. KVOO is where his career began in 1983.
MAHAFFEY said, “It’s rare that someone in my position in this industry has the chance to go back where it all started. I’m a lucky guy. So much of what I learned about doing radio, especially personality radio, I learned at KVOO from Mr. (BILLY) PARKER and Mr. (JACK) CRESE. JOURNAL BROADCAST GROUP has gone out of their way to make me feel at home, and I am indeed fortunate to have terrific people to work with.”
PD LUKE JENSEN added, “To be able to bring a three-time CMA AWARD winner back to the radio station where he got his start is an opportunity that doesn’t come along often. We are thrilled to welcome SKIP into the JOURNAL BROADCAST GROUP family and are excited for the record of success he brings with him.”
