Big Changes At Oasis Radio/Ft. Wayne
January 24, 2011 at 2:35 PM (PT)
Several changes at the OASIS RADIO/FT. WAYNE cluster as OM/Dir. Programming PHIL BECKER moves up to GM/Dir. Programming. BECKER will oversee Top 40/Rhythmic WJFX (HOT 1079), Country WBTU (US 93.3) and Talk WJOE (106.3 THE TRUTH).
One of BECKER's first orders of business was the hiring of CHRIS SAGLIAN as Dir./Sales for the cluster. SAGLIAN arrives with sales experience at WSB/ATLANTA, WPYO/ORLANDO, WHTZ/GREENVILLE, SC, CKEY/BUFFALO and most recently TOWN SQUARE MEDIA/BUFFALO.
BECKER's promotion to the GM spot necessitated some changes in the programming departments of the cluster. WJFX morning co-host AUSTIN is named APD at the station. In addition to his morning show and imaging responsibilities, AUSTIN will join BECKER in the day-to-day programming of WJFX.
AUSTIN's morning show co-host ALANA takes on the newly created position of Music Coordinator at WJFX. WJFX night jock NUGGET joins ALANA as a Music Coordinator at WJFX.
At WBTU, MD/morning host AJ is upped to APD and will be BECKER's right hand for key parts of the programming of WBTU. WBTU afternoon jock COLIN picks up MD stripes succeeding AJ.
