LINCOLN FINANCIAL MEDIA Country KYGO/DENVER has announced the hiring of JOHN THOMAS as the new PD for KYGO and sister Oldies KRWZ-A. He replaces JOEL BURKE, who left the company in AUGUST (NET NEWS 8/20).
THOMAS, previously Dir./Operations and Programming at ENTERCOM/ROCHESTER, NY, begins his new position in NOVEMBER.
LFM/DENVER SVP/GM BOB CALL said: “JOHN has had ratings success at every stop of his radio career. The impressive job he’s done at heritage ROCHESTER Country station WBEE got our attention. JOHN understands the unique place KYGO holds in the DENVER market and is the perfect choice to lead our talented programming team. The second part of the win-win is JOHN’s multi-format programming experience, which includes Classic Hits/Oldies. That background will be a nice addition to the CRUISIN’ OLDIES 950 team.”
THOMAS added: "After spending time with BOB CALL, JOHN DIMICK and in the hallways of KYGO and KRWZ, it became clear to me that this is possibly the best programming job around. KYGO has been on my radar a long time and I can’t wait to start. And I’m looking forward to being part of the fun staff at CRUISIN' OLDIES 950.”
