CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO/TUCSON has appointed CHRIS PICKETT as its new OM. PICKETT will officially start on MAY 2nd as he arrives from COLORADO SPRINGS where he served as OM for the CLEAR CHANNEL cluster. PICKETT replaces TIM RICHARDS who recently transitioned into the role of Show Producer for the JOHNJAY AND RICH Show.
PICKETT is already "in" with an important TUCSON element, THE JOHNJAY AND RICH SHOW, as they have hosted mornings on KVUU for the past few years. His career has also included programming stops in INDIANAPOLIS, CLEVELAND and DENVER.
"CHRIS had a long run successfully programming KVUU and THE BEAT in COLORADO SPRINGS and helped take the cluster of CC stations in THE SPRINGS and PUEBLO to new heights as the OM the last couple of years. As CHRIS exits, four of the five FMs in THE SPRINGS are rolling up, and all five brands have grown under his tenure. I look forward to him doing the same for our brands in TUCSON,” said SVP/Programming BRAD HARDIN.
TUCSON Market Mgr. SHANNA MCCOY added,"CHRIS' track record of success will ensure the continued growth of our great radio stations in TUCSON by serving our community of listeners, on-air and online. We are very excited to have CHRIS' talent on our team.
