CLEAR CHANNEL Alternative WXSR (X101.5)/TALLAHASSEE, FL hires KNOX (a.k.a. MATT SHIFLETT) as PD/afternoons. The PD post at X101.5 had been vacant for over a year since MAYNARD's exit in FEBRUARY 2009.
KNOX joins from sister Active Rock WKLS (PROJECT 9-6-1)/ATLANTA where he was Programming Asst./nights.
KNOX told ALL ACCESS, "I couldn't be more excited to begin my career as a Program Director at WXSR. AJ (middays), SOUR (promotions director), and the rest of the X101.5 are hungry and dedicated to make a mark on the world, and after the knowledge and direction I have received from CHRIS WILLIAMS and the rest of the family at WKLS (PROJECT 9-6-1), I am 100% confident in my abilities to lead the X staff and make it happen!"
OM JEFF HORN noted, "KNOX is in the building and already putting up BOBBY COX posters. I was really hoping for posters of THE REAL HOUSEWIVES of the ATL. KNOX has learned well under the great leadership in ATLANTA. His on-air and programming skills will keep X on top!
Meanwhile, AJ (a.k.a. AMANDA MALONE) moves from afternoons to middays.
