CUMULUS Triple A KFOG/SAN FRANCISCO has named one of the format's premiere programmers, DENNIS CONSTANTINE, as its new PD, effective next week (2/16). CONSTANTINE joins KFOG following an 11-year run at KINK/PORTLAND (NET NEWS 10/12/10).
In his new post at KFOG, CONSTANTINE replaces DAVE BENSON, who joined ENTERCOM Triple A KMTT/SEATTLE (NET NEWS 6/5/2009), where he'll be joined by KELLY RANSFORD, who announced that she is leaving the APD/MD post at KFOG to produce KMTT's morning show (NET NEWS 2/1).
CUMULUS SVP/Programming JAN JEFFRIES told ALL ACCESS, "DENNIS has run some of the best stations in his long career, KINK, KLTH, KBCO, KBPI, KTLK, WMYQ, Y100 and has successfully consulted over 20 stations as well. This makes him absolutely the most qualified candidate we could find for this rare post at KFOG. His qualifications are only surpassed by what a gentleman and professional he is. We are thrilled to have DENNIS on the CUMULUS team in SAN FRANCISCO."
CONSTANTINE told ALL ACCESS, "I am very excited about this. For me, it's the thrill of a lifetime to be associated with KFOG and CUMULUS, and to be part of this after having observed KFOG from the sidelines for so many years. I'm jumping in with both feet and have worked with some of the KFOG staff in the past, so I'm very pleased with things, and will work hard to make KFOG even better."
