CITADEL Country KATC/COLORADO SPRINGS, CO PD/PM drive personality NICK ALAN is joining ENTERCOM Country KKWF (100.7 THE WOLF)/SEATTLE as Night Personality/Imaging Director.
Nights at KKWF were formerly handled by ALAN KABEL (NET NEWS 1/25).
KKWF PD MIKE PRESTON said: “After a nation-wide search for a strong multi-tasking, programming savvy air personality, it’s ironic that I literally bumped into NICK at COUNTRY RADIO SEMINAR in NASHVILLE! I’m thrilled we could convince him to trade the ROCKY MOUNTAINS for the CASCADES and the PACIFIC!”
NICK has also previously handled PD/MD duties at CITADEL’s Country WTNR/GRAND RAPIDS, MI and has recently done some hosting on DIAL GLOBAL’s “TRUE COUNTRY” format. NICK will become the primary producer of station promos and imaging and he begins his new WOLF duties on MONDAY, APRIL 11th.
