CUMULUS Country KPLX/DALLAS has tapped WILKS BROADCASTING Country KLLL/LUBBOCK APD/MD/air personality KEN BUCKNER for mornings. This is a return to KPLX for BUCKNER, who was with the station from 1999-2004.
CUMULUS SVP/Programming JAN JEFFRIES said, “KEN is the clear choice among almost 200 candidates who were in line to wake up DALLAS each morning on the most listened to country station in the nation. KEN was at The WOLF early in his career. He is joining CUMULUS at a pivotal point as we grow the CUMULUS Country footprint nationally to 90 plus stations. Through his self-starting tenacity, energy and desire to learn and polish his craft daily, KEN will lead “The Wake Up the WOLF,” show as the alpha WOLF.”
Adds KPLX PD MARK PHILLIPS, “KENNY is an extremely talented and compelling professional and we are very excited about him coming back home to the WOLF. He will make a great addition to the morning show."
BUCKNER starts at KPLX on MARCH 21st, where he'll join LISA TAYLOR on mornings, who is already in place.
Concurrently, KLLL PD JEFF SCOTT is looking for BUCKNER's replacement as PD/afternoon personality. If you are interested, reach out to JEFF at email@example.com.
