Clear Channel Media and Entertainment Dallas announces that Jay Shannon has been named Program Director for KDGE-FM and KDMX-FM, effective March 15, 2014.  Shannon will oversee all programming operations for KDGE-FM and KDMX-FM, and will report to Patrick Davis, Vice President of Operations for CCM+E Dallas.

Shannon will join the market from CCM+E Austin, where he has programmed multiple formats for more than 11 years. He most recently served as Vice President of Operations for the Austin cluster.  Shannon excels in talent coaching and has helped develop many national on air personalities, including nationally syndicated morning show host Bobby Bones. 

“I’m thrilled for the opportunity to work in an amazing market and be a part of such strong brands like KDGE and KDMX,” said Shannon. “Thank you Clay Hunnicutt, Patrick Davis, Deidre Richter and Kelly Kibler for this incredible opportunity!  I would also thank Pam McKay for her support and partnership these past seven years.”

“Jay has been very successful throughout his time in Austin, and has a knack for developing talent,” said Davis. “He has an outstanding track record and I could not be more pleased to have him join the Dallas team.”
