JOHN GOVIA, PD of LONG ISLAND RADIO Top 40 WBEA (101.7 THE BEACH)/HAMPTONS, NY, will now also serve as PD of ADVANCED MEDIA PARTNERS (AMP) Top 40 WPIA/PEORIA, IL.
GOVIA, who will split his time between both stations and markets, previously worked in the PEORIA market at WPIA, as well as crosstown Rhythmic WZPW (POWER 92).
GOVIA told ALL ACCESS, "I'd like to thank AMP MEDIA for giving me the opportunity to take on the challenge of making 98.5 KISS-FM the the great radio station I know it's capable of being, I'm happy to be back in PEORIA with my friends and family, and I get to keep my place in the HAMPTONS too, which is really cool."
GOVIA's afternoon show, "GOVIA Radio," will also air on both stations.
Prior to programming WBEA, GOVIA was PM Drive Producer at CBS Top 40 WXRK/NEW YORK.
