October 31, 201610 Questions with ... Kelly 'K3' Doherty
BRIEF CAREER SYNOPSIS:
I grew up in Southern California listening to KIIS, KROQ, KGGI, etc. My dad worked for General Dynamics and was transferred to Tucson, AZ where I joined my parents the day after I graduated high school. As I drove though Tucson I saw ‘KRQ’ on the side of a building and thought, “They have a KROQ, here, too!”
I interned for KRQ and was finally hired to do overnights and commercial production for the Prism Radio Partners Tucson cluster, where I also fell in love with imaging.
From there I went to KDWB in Minneapolis as Imaging Director, which included middays at sister station KTCZ. Six years later I moved to Miami to image their six station cluster. John Ivey called two years later and I headed home to the ultimate Imaging dream job at KIIS in Los Angeles. I started working with Tom Poleman on national events and was named ‘Director of Creative Services’ for Clear Channel’s national programming team. After eight years at KIIS, I headed to NYC as Vice President of Imaging. I moved back to Los Angeles in 2014 to continue as VP closer to home. It’s the dream job of dream jobs!
