CCM+E Urban WGCI/Chicago PD Kris Kelley adds PD duties for sister CHR WKSC (103-5 KISS FM). Kelley replaces Rick Vaughn, who recently joined CCM+E-Atlanta.
In announcing Kelley's new position, CCM+E-Chicago OM Tony Coles said, "We have the two most powerful youth targeted brands in the market and I cannot think of anyone more qualified to lead these great stations. Over the past several years Kris has demonstrated her ability to help drive ratings and revenue at WGCI. She has recruited and developed one of the most talented teams in Urban radio and I am excited to now have her expertise as a part of our WKSC strategy."
Coles added, "As a result of our decision to expand Kris' role, we will be making some other changes today as well. Kris will relinquish her midday duties at V103. We have already begun the search for a new host. Also, we are expanding the duties and responsibilities of the Assistant Program Director role. Jordan has done an amazing job at KISS FM during this transition. He will continue in that role, and will play an more active role in the day to day operations under Kris' guidance. At WGCI we are launching the search of an Assistant Program Director who will have similar responsibilities. Al Sylk will continue in his role as Music Director at WGCI."
