In addition to Howard's new duties programming BIG 100.3, he will also continue to program iconic Modern Rock WWDC (DC101).

"WBIG is such an exciting opportunity," said Howard. "I couldn't be more thrilled." 

King is an industry veteran and has been on-air and programming for more than 27 years, serving markets like Washington, D.C.; Pittsburgh; and Charleston, S.C. He has worked in the Washington, D.C. market for nearly 15 years in a variety of roles including Operations Manager and Program Director at WRQX, WJZW and WVRX, where he developed on-air and digital brands for a variety of formats.

"I am absolutely thrilled to program WASH-FM, a station I've admired for years!  The opportunity to join the WQSR team in Baltimore really makes this the most exciting time in my career," said King. "I would like to thank Thea Mitchem, Dennis Lamme and Meg Stevens for inviting me to be a part of their incredible programming team and I look forward to winning with so many of the talented people I know and respect at Clear Channel."

"Kenny's extensive experience and success in the DC market make him the perfect choice to program both WASH and WQSR," said Meg Stevens, Vice President of Programming, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment Washington, D.C./Baltimore. "James' incredible success with WWDC makes him a natural fit for WBIG."
