CLEAR CHANNEL Alternative KDGE (102.1 THE EDGE)/DALLAS APD/MD/nighttimer AYO steps down from his programming duties to concentrate on THE EDGE OF NIGHT. Look for AYO to add additional duties with THE EDGE's HD channel down the road.
KDGE PD DUANE DOHERY has tapped middayer CHRIS RYAN as APD. RYAN will also share co-MD duties with late-nighter JOSH VENABLE.
AYO told ALL ACCESS, "Remember ALIENS, when RIPLEY is frantically trying to help the whole gang to safety in the armored vehicle? Well, it’s been five years,constant 12 hour workdays, and the funnest job I ever had, but damn, I need to `EASE DOWN' `EASE DOWN.' I started grinding metal! Its all about my show for now, and lookin forward to jumping back into a whole new programming animal later on."
