CLEAR CHANNEL Country WKKT/CHARLOTTE PD BRUCE LOGAN has announced that APD/MD/night slammer RYAN DOKKE has put in his resignation after three years with the station. DOKKE is leaving radio to pursue a different career path. Prior to joining WKKT, RYAN was APD/MD at CITADEL Country KDRK/SPOKANE.
LOGAN says: “Just over three years ago, I found RYAN cold, scared and wet, hiding beneath a dumpster at CRACKER BARREL ... and I asked him to join the KAT team. Looking back, it’s one of the smartest hires of my career. I will miss the work and contribution he makes to our success at WKKT and I will miss having my friend next door every single day. RYAN’s last day will be FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 25th. He is very excited about his future and I couldn’t be more proud of him.”
So now where is Mr. DOKKE headed? Rumors have been circulating for weeks that he has been talking to a couple of major labels. Look for an announcement very soon.
The search is on for a new APD/MD/night-time jock. The ideal candidate should have “tremendous RCS skills, will be very well organized, have great social media skills and know-how to make a show sizzle inside a more music approach.” Knowledge of NEXGEN and existing relationships with fellow industry friends in NASHVILLE are a plus. Existing small market PDs or APD/MDs who are ready for a challenge are very much encouraged to apply.
