Peak Broadcasting/Fresno’s 93.7 Kiss Country (KSKS-FM and KSKS.COM) announced a series of changes to its management and program schedule in Central California. Three-year PD and morning show co-host Tom Jordan has resigned and has chosen not to renew his contract with the station.
Commented KSKS VP/GM Patty Hixson: “Tom Jordan’s incredible work ethic and professionalism will be missed at 93-7 Kiss Country. Tom made sure our station remained the leading country station in The Central Valley and we wish him well in his future endeavors.”
Tom’s exit from the station necessitated a new morning show as well as program adjustments throughout the day. As of 9/7, the 93-7 Kiss Country Morning Show now features local, well known, and popular Kiss Country Personalities Greg Lane and “Gnarley” Charlie Fitzgerald. With a combined 30+ years on the air at KSKS, Lane and “Gnarley Charlie” are well known to listeners and advertisers alike.
“I am truly excited at the potential that Greg and Charlie together in the morning bring to KSKS,” said Hixson. “Their warm and engaging personalities as well as their commitment to the community through local charities and large gatherings throughout the area over decades, make them perfectly qualified to take on this important role at 93-7 KISS Country. Greg and Charlie together in the morning create a ‘best in class’ experience as both our listeners and advertisers know and love them. Separately, they have established themselves as high profile names throughout Central California, a position that will only be strengthened by bringing them together first thing in the morning.”
And last, but not least, former KSKS morning co-host Erica Pierce will move to middays. Additional program changes, as well as an announcement about the KSKS PD position will be forthcoming.
