Over the weekend, WILKS Country KUUS (NEW COUNTRY AND THE LEGENDS)/FRESNO has flipped to Smooth Jazz 105.5 under PD J. WEIDENHEIMER, who last programmed CLEAR CHANNEL Smooth Jazz KEZL, now Hot AC KALZ (MY ALICE 96.7), as of JANUARY.
WILKS/FRESNO Market Mgr. KEVIN O’RORKE noted, "We are thrilled to have the opportunity to provide the FRESNO market with the Smooth Jazz sound they know and love and to have a third market-exclusive format in our cluster of stations. We are equally pleased to announce that J. WEIDENHEIMER has been named PD. He represents more than 15 years of Jazz programming experience in the market and is the perfect addition to lead our team."
As a result of the flip, KUUS PD MARK LILLIE and morning man GNARLEY CHARLEY both exit.
