CUMULUS MEDIA/MEMPHIS has given a multi-year extension to Country WGKX (KIX 106) and AC WKIM (98.9 THE BRIDGE) PD DUANE SHANNON. He has been with CUMULUS/MEMPHIS for nine years, with more than eight of those years also serving as co-host of WGKX’s “DUANE AND ABBY IN THE MORNING” show.
“DUANE has become part of the fiber of both KIX 106 and MEMPHIS,” CUMULUS/MEMPHIS VP/Market Manager MORGAN BOHANNON said. “He has exhibited a great knowledge, appreciation and passion for what is a historic, heritage and leading brand in MEMPHIS. KIX 106 has been the leading Country brand in MEMPHIS for over 30 years, and we’re highly confident that will continue with DUANE’s leadership.”
“I can’t believe they continue to trust me with this legendary station … you’re sure there is no one better out there?” SHANNON said. “Seriously, it is a pleasure to come in to work and be a part of a creative team that motivates me to win every day.”
