Veteran programmer LARRY GIFFORD has joined BONNEVILLE Talk KIRO-F and Talk KTTH-A (THE TRUTH)/SEATTLE as PD, effective MAY 2nd. GIFFORD was most recently PD at ESPN Sports KSPN-A (710 ESPN)/LOS ANGELES and previously served as PD for the ESPN RADIO network and as PD at WBNS-A/COLUMBUS.
"LARRY is a talent-focused leader whose passion is working closely with on-air performers to hone their craft and develop their shows," said BONNEVILLE SEATTLE VP/Market Manager CARL GARDNER. "We're breaking new ground in SEATTLE, redefining news and talk for a new generation of radio and digital audiences. LARRY's skills and interests are a perfect fit for where we are in our evolution."
"When I first heard that RYAN HATCH was leaving KIRO and KTTH, I said to my wife, 'that's an amazing opportunity for someone," said GIFFORD. "Little did I know that someone would be me. BONNEVILLE SEATTLE has some of the brightest, most talented people in the business, and they are transforming spoken word radio. I look forward to helping them pursue that vision."
