Entercom’s KNDD (107.7 The End)/Seattle today announced an unconventional move to redefine how it presents radio to its listeners and its advertisers. Re-imagining the radio experience entirely, The End has unveiled the “2 Minute Promise.” The End will not only play half the commercials compared to other radio stations in Seattle, but will also play the most music of any station in the market.
       “Since its inception, The End has been a leader in new music discovery and a radio innovator. The time has come for a radio station to make a stand for our listeners and our advertisers,” said Garett Michaels, Program Director of 107.7 The End. “The End’s ‘2 Minute Promise’ gives our listeners exactly what they’ve asked for, more music with fewer breaks, and is a groundbreaking new way to showcase our advertisers with less clutter and more music.”

Classic Rock KGON/Portland welcomes Dave Scott as its new afternoon host. Scott most recently was at Triple A KINK/Portland where he handled mornings.

Market vet Scott Curtis joins Classic Rock KCKK/Denver for middays.

Horizon Broadcasting Group has rebranded KLTW-FM/Bend from Continuous LITE Rock LITE 95.7 to “95.7 MY FM – Bend’s Best Variety.”

Former KYSR/Los Angeles APD/MD/midday host Darren Rose has launched his latest endeavor - Darren Rose Radio: Inside Radio & Records, an unrestricted conversation series with artists, producers, managers, DJs, record execs, and other industry players offering perspective on their career and the music business. Check it out at http://darrenroseradio.com/.
