SAN ANTONIO – May 21, 2012 – Cox Media Group (CMG) San Antonio promotes Kelley Kendall to the KISS 99.5 FM and KTKX 106.7 FM Program Director position. In addition to this promotion, Kendall will continue her mid-day host on KISS.
Kendall joined CMG San Antonio 15 years ago this month as a full-time employee with the KISS Morning Show. She turned a “traffic girl” job into a full time co-host and producer for the Lisle & Hahn Show, where she learned the importance of team building and patience. For 10 years she has also been a voice for local nonprofit organizations with her Sunday Morning Magazine that airs on all CMG San Antonio stations. Since their arrival, Kendall has also been a “cheerleader” for The Billy Madison Show, helping “the boys” assimilate to San Antonio.
“Kelley brings a deep passion for the KISS brand, which will provide the fuel to develop a ‘team spirit’ with our talented on-air and support staff,” said Dan Lawrie, VP and Market Manager for CMG San Antonio. “We have high expectations of continued ratings growth for both KISS and KTKX, and I believe Kelley is the right person to help us achieve those goals.”
“I am truly honored that CMG management is giving me this opportunity,” said Kendall. “KISS and KTKX have talented, dedicated air staffs. Our promotions department is excellent, and our sales staff rocks! I greatly look forward to helping each department reach its full potential with ratings and sales and have a good time doing it.”
CMG San Antonio also operates KKYX 680 AM, KCYY 100.3 FM, KSMG Magic 105.3 FM, and KONO 860 AM and 101.1 FM.
