iHeartMedia announces that Todd "Carson" Zarnitz has been named the Afternoon Drive personality for CHR KKTZ (Z100, Portland’s No. 1 Hit Music Station) and CHR KPWK (Power 93.3, Seattle’s New No. 1 For Hit Music), effective February 15.
"We are excited to add Carson to our teams here in Portland and Seattle," said Tim Herbster, SVP of Programming of the Pacific Northwest Region for iHeartMedia. "His passion, enthusiasm and wealth of experience will be a great addition to help us grow Z100 and Power 93.3."
Carson previously served as the weekend personality at WHTZ/New York City, WIOQ/Philadelphia and WIHT/Washington, D.C. He also worked as an on-air personality for radio stations in Tampa, Orlando and Houston, and worked for more than five years as an Account Executive at iHeartMedia-Philadelphia.
"What an incredible honor it is to serve the Portland and Seattle community and join the terrific Northwest team with Robert Dove, Justin Riley and Tim Herbster," said Carson. "This is an amazing opportunity, and I am beyond excited to get started and connect with our listeners."
Power 93.3 PD Justin Riley adds, "I couldn’t be happier that Carson has decided to join us in dominating the northwest between Portland and Seattle. This unique position will be well served by his experience, passion and drive – literally because he’ll be spending a lot of time commuting between the two markets!"
