CLEAR CHANNEL AC KESZ/PHOENIX PD/afternoons KEVIN GOSSETT has been given additional duties as Digital PD for CLEAR CHANNEL/PHOENIX. He will oversee digital content development and audience engagement for the market’s eight websites and their social media extensions.
"I am pleased to appoint KEVIN to this newly-created position," CLEAR CHANNEL/PHOENIX Pres./Market Manager JEFF ENGLAND said. "His knowledge and vision in the digital realm is remarkable. Coupling the current upsurge in digital media consumption with the excellent reach of our terrestrial radio stations makes for a powerful and engaging combination for our listeners and customers."
"Next to my family, the two most important things in my life are radio and 'net. I got my start in radio in the early 80s, working part-time for KZZP while writing code for a software company in SCOTTSDALE full-time, but happily gave up computer programming to earn my living on the radio. I couldn't be more excited at the opportunities we've got today, as my two worlds merge. We've got the most digital-savvy programming team I've seen here at CLEAR CHANNEL/PHOENIX, and I'm looking forward to working with this exceptionally good group of programmers here to make our cluster the digital standard-setter for the company and industry. It's an exciting time!"
Dir./Programming and Operations SMOKEY RIVERS added, "KEVIN has been a digital mentor to the PHOENIX programming staff for the past few years. His appointment to this new position is a well-deserved acknowledgement of his skills and contributions."
