As first rumored yesterday on ALLACCESS, after 11 years at JEFFERSON-PILOT Top 40 WSTR (STAR 94)/ATLANTA, APD J.R. AMMONS has resigned and has accepted the PD post at CBS Top 40 KMXV (MIX 93.3)/KANSAS CITY. His start date will be announced in the next few weeks.
CBS/KANSAS CITY Market Mgr. HERNDON HASTY said, "JR’s extensive and proven background in programming, promotions, music and marketing make him a natural choice and terrific fit for our situation in KANSAS CITY. While the talent search for this position gave us a lot of great programming talent to consider, JR’s skill set was the best match for us.
AMMONS told ALL ACCESS, "I am as excited about this move to MIX 93.3 as I was about coming to STAR 94 -- both have been once in a lifetime deals. I could not be more thrilled to move from one legendary station to another. If someone had told me this was going to happen six months ago, I would not have believed it. I am very pumped about meeting everyone there and getting going. I'm very impressed with HERDON HASTY and Dir./Programming MIKE KENNEDY. My thanks to all of my friends here at STAR 94 for a great run."
