CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40/Mainstream KZZP (KISS FM)/PHOENIX has promoted JOHNJAY & RICH Morning Show Director TIM RICHARDS to PD, effective immediately. He will continue his duties with the morning show.
"TIM has been a tremendous long-term asset to the JOHNJAY & RICH Show and to all of CLEAR CHANNEL’s PHOENIX stations," CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO/PHOENIX Pres./Market Manager Jeff England SAID. "Naming TIM the Program Director of their home market station was the natural choice. With MARK MEDINA’s recent move to CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO in WASHINGTON, D.C./BALTIMORE, it is exciting to have a veteran like TIM step into the role."
"It's an honor to program KISS FM and continue working with the world-class Johnjay and Rich brand. It feels like the perfect fit," said RICHARDS, who was PD of KRQ/TUCSON, where JOHNJAY & RICH debuted over a decade ago. "I’m focused on keeping KISS on its winning trajectory. SMOKEY RIVERS and JEFF ENGLAND have cultivated a top-notch culture and it's great to be on their team."
