CLEAR CHANNEL Alternative WRXL (102.1 THE X)/RICHMOND OM DAVE SYMONDS tells ALL ACCESS, "I couldn't be more pleased to announce our new PD for 102.1 THE X ... DUSTIN 'FLETCHER' MATTHEWS. DUSTIN is currently doing mornings/APD at WFNX/BOSTON, but is no stranger to RICHMOND as he worked at WDYL years ago. He’s also successfully programmed in KNOXVILLE and SAVANNAH. He’ll start early next month."
Added SYMONDS, "during this process, we interviewed some of the most talented programmers in the country. DUSTIN was selected because of how strongly fits our needs -- a driving energy, a strong love and knowledge of the format and lifestyle, a sharp and creative mind, positive and collaborative approach, no BS or drama, a superb programming record, and people just say great things about him. MASON, MOJO, VIRGINIA and now DUSTIN -- what an amazing local team! With ELLIOT and NIKKI SIXX, and all the right pieces in programming and promotions, a new generation of RICHMOND listeners will no doubt know 102.1 THE X as that 'great rock station!'"
"I've spent four amazing years at the legendary 'FNX here in BOSTON," said MATTHEWS, "but now it's time to take my PAPELBON jersey back down south for a new challenge. I'm thrilled to be joining the team at CLEAR CHANNEL/RICHMOND and 102-1 THE X. ELLIOT continues to dominate mornings and MASON (afternoons) has already become a star after just a year in the market. To work along side of DAVE SYMONDS and JON ZELLNER is truly an honor."
MATTHEWS replaces CASEY KRUKOWSKI, who exited after 10 years on JUNE 10th for the PD post at sister Rocker WEBN/CINCINNATI (NET NEWS 5/27).
