Several Boise radio stations made a bunch of changes in the last few weeks:
- Wow Country 104.3 co-host Rick Dunn is no longer with the station. His last day on-air was last week. A flood of questions from listeners on the Wow Country Facebook page asking where Rick went have not been answered. Dunn’s co-host Carly Cash is teamed, for now, with Townsquare Media operations manager Jeff Connell. The company is advertising for a new KAWO co-host in Boise, ID – but the post mentions living in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. “Rick and Carly” as they were known on-air came to Boise as a team from a station in Salt Lake City.
- 103.5 Kiss FM recently hired Mikey Fuentes as brand manager for the station. Fuentes helped launch competing station Wild 101 in 2009, and returned to the market after a long stint in Phoenix. Fuentes currently appears on-air weekdays for the station.
- Speaking of Wild 101, the station recently hired JD Garfield back to run the station. Garfield formerly hosted mornings on Wild before leaving the market for a position in Lousiville, KY.
- 107.9 Lite FM promoted morning host Michelle Heart to brand manager for the adult pop hits and Christmas music station. Heart started with Townsquare Media as co-host of the morning show on Kiss FM in 2010 before moving to co-owned Lite FM in 2017 to host the morning show. The promotion means she will now oversee the overall direction and brand for the station.
