CLEAR CHANNEL Alternative KYSR (98-7fm)/LOS ANGELES ups APD/morning show producer and co-host DARREN ROSE to MD/PM drive, replacing JOSH VENABLE, who recently moved back to sister Alternative KDGE (102.1 THE EDGE)/DALLAS as PD.
In addition, NATALIE ESHAYA joins 98-7fm as Asst. MD/producer of MUSIC IN THE MORNING WITH KENNEDY. She has a long history with CLEAR CHANNEL/LOS ANGELES, having worked at KIIS beginning 2001 as the producer of the station’s evening show. In 2004, NATALIE joined the "ON-AIR WITH RYAN SEACREST," staff as a producer of the local morning show on 102.7 KISS-FM, and in 2007 became a Sr. Producer of the local, national and American Top 40 programs.
98-7fm PD JULIE PILAT said, "DARREN has been one of the core members of Team 98-7fm since we flipped Alternative. He has a great gut for the format and ear for the music, along with solid promotion/marketing instincts. It’s been awesome watching him grow in so many directions over the past several years. I am super-excited to work with him in these new roles."
PILAT added, "NATALIE is an amazing addition to the 98-7fm crew. Having worked with her for so many years at KIIS, I know how talented, hard-working and dedicated she is. She knows what it takes to be part of a #1 team. NATALIE is passionate about 98-7fm and the music, she will be a huge asset from a social media standpoint in our continued effort to support artist development, new bands, and build community via blogs and content."
