June 24, 2011 at 1:55 PM (PT)
JERRY BUTLER, who is currently Market Manager/Sales Manager at TOWNSQUARE/BILLINGS, has been named as the new PD for UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA Country WRUF-F (THE GATOR)/GAINESVILLE and sister Sports WRUF-A.
BUTLER will start in GAINESVILLE on JULY 11th. SCOTT LINDAHL is currently overseeing TOWNSQUARE/BILLINGS until a replacement is found.
Exec. Dir. RANDY WRIGHT thanked current PD RON BROOKS for helping to launch both stations and said in a release, " JERRY and I will be working with RON on his future plans and will be supportive of his career aspirations, wherever those may take him. He is an adept radio programmer and will be very successful no matter the course he chooses for his future."
RON BROOKS, who is still at WRUF, told ALL ACCESS, “WRUF-FM is talking with me about remaining on this project. It's been very exciting for me to flip Rock 104 to Country. I created the station from the ground up and in the first full book (W11), without external marketing, we won the Country battle in ALACHUA COUNTY of the GAINESVILLE-OCALA METRO. I'm looking forward to what the future might bring and will be entertaining all options.
