MAX MEDIA/DENVER OM ZAC DAVIS, who oversaw Top 40 KDHT (HOT 107.1) and Urban Oldies KJHM (JAMMIN' 101.5) with day-to-day PD duties at KDHT, is leaving to join CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 WDCG (G105) and Rhythmic AC WKSL (93.9 KISS FM)/RALEIGH as PD.
DAVIS is replacing G105 PD RANDI WEST, who is leaving to join WMTX/TAMPA as PD/afternooner (NET NEWS 4/22). He'll also take over the PD duties at WKSL from OM CHRIS SHEBEL, beginning his new duties on JUNE 15th, and reporting to SHEBEL.
In addition, G105 APD/MD BRODY has been promoted, and will add those duties at WKSL.
SHEBEL noted, "For the past few months we have been looking at who does what in the programming department and how to best maximize everyone's skills and we are going to do a little reorganizing. As the G105/KISS universe moves closer we are combining some duties that will make the stations more complimentary from a programming standpoint. I will be relinquishing the PD position on KISS and ZAC will assume those responsibilities. At the same time, BRODY will add APD/MD duties for KISS.
"ZAC and BRODY have been friends for years and even survived roommate status during ZAC's previous time here. Their combined knowledge and passion for the formats of KISS and G105 should make for some very exciting radio!
"BRODY will continue his current air shift on G105, as will RANDI. ZAC will be on-air on KISS and I will be moving to the RIVER so BRIAN can focus full-time on RUSH RADIO."
DAVIS told ALL ACCESS, "I want to thank MAX MEDIA/DENVER GM JEFF NORMAN, consultant ALAN BURNS, KJHM PD and Marketing Dir. BRIAN DeGRASSE and everyone at MAX MEDIA/DENVER for an incredible two-plus years. We've done some amazing things with both brands and I'm proud of what we've accomplished on HOT 107.1 and JAMMIN' 101.5. As a lifelong BRONCOS fan, I'll be flying back for games.
"When my dream job in RALEIGH opened, I couldn't pass up the chance to go for it. My thanks to GM DICK HARLOW, OM CHRIS SHEBEL and SVPP JON ZELLNER for selecting me for this once-in-a-career opportunity. I can't wait to get to work with BOB AND THE SHOWGRAM, and the G105 and KISS staffs. I have big shoes to fill because RANDI has done such a wonderful job here. Oh, and GO HEELS!"
