Chris Ebbott has been named Program Director for KRTH (K-EARTH 101)/Los Angeles, it was announced today by Dan Kearney, SVP/Market Manager, CBS Radio Los Angeles. Ebbott will assume his new role at the Classic Hits station beginning on Wednesday, July 16. Since 2010 Ebbott has been programming CHR CKFM/Toronto.
Ebbott succeeds Rick Thomas who recently took a similar programming position with CBS Radio in New York.

“While we talked to many talented candidates, Chris’s track record of success with the Classic Hits format, success in developing on-air talent and past history with our cluster made him an excellent choice. I fully expect K-EARTH to continue to grow under Chris’s leadership and vision,” said Kearney.

While in Toronto, Ebbott also guided CHBM from 2010– 2013 and it became the highest-rated Adult Hits station in core demos soon after his arrival. Ebbott is returning to Los Angeles where from 2004 – 2010 he helped launch CBS Radio’s KCBS (JACK FM)) while he was Operations Manager. Prior to that Ebbott was a Sr. Research Associate at Pinnacle Media Worldwide, the PD WMWX/Philadelphia and KZON-FM/Phoenix, and the marketing director at KFI/Los Angeles.

"K-EARTH is one of the premier radio brands in the world and to be a part of the team responsible for its future success is both an honor and thrill,” said Ebbott. “Thank you to Dan Kearney and Kevin Weatherly for the opportunity. CBS Radio Los Angeles is a second home for me and I’m looking forward to once again working with the whole crew."
