Joel Burke Resigns KYGO PD Chair
August 20, 2010 at 4:40 PM (PT)
LINCOLN FINANCIAL Country KYGO/DENVER PD JOEL BURKE has resigned his post after nearly 11 years with the station. That's just over a third of the station's life as a Country outlet, with many of those years as the market-dominant station.
ALL ACCESS has learned that BURKE is going to launch WOODEN MEDIA SERVICES, with a site name www.woodenmediaservices.com parked until launched next week. Reach JOEL at firstname.lastname@example.org or (720) 363-3120.
LINCOLN FINANCIAL/DENVER SVP/GM BOB CALL told ALL ACCESS, "JOEL stepped down. His decision completely. While it seems sudden, he and I had been talking for a while. He has some exciting things he wants to accomplish and feels this is the right time to get started.
"JOEL was one of only four PD's in KYGO's 30 year history. He is a great guy. I will miss working with him. GARRET DOLL, KYGO's Music Director will handle day to day programming chores in the interim."
Meanwhile, this job is wide open. So reach out to LINCOLN FINANCIAL VP/Programming JOHN DIMICK with a package at email@example.com for this EOE post.
