ENTERCOM Sports WEEI-F and Sports WEEI-A (ESPN 850)/BOSTON has filled the programming management gap left by KEVIN GRAHAM's departure earlier this year by promoting APD/Executive Producer JOE ZARBANO to PD, upping Senior Producer BEN KICHEN to Executive Producer, and naming Director of Integrated Marketing Strategies CARLSON MOZDIEZ as Director of Operations for ENTERCOM BOSTON with special emphasis on WEEI.com. ZARBANO, who will directly oversee the WEEI stations, the WEEI network of affiliates across NEW ENGLAND, and the BOSTON RED SOX RADIO NETWORK, has been with WEEI for nine years, starting as an intern while attending EMERSON COLLEGE; KICHEN joined the station in 2006 and has been producing the GLENN ORDWAY and DALE ARNOLD and MICHAEL HOLLEY shows. MOZDIEZ has been at ENTERCOM BOSTON since 2002.
ENTERCOM NEW ENGLAND VP/Market Manager PHIL ZACHARY said, “With its massive broadcast reach and associated digital assets, the WEEI brand is arguably among the most influential and complex in all of broadcasting. Many of our outside candidates simply couldn’t get their arms around all of it. As each month passed, it became clear to me that we had the talent right here in BEN, CARLSON and JOE. Plus they each have that inimitable DNA of the true BOSTON sports fan.”
