This week’s eQB Cover Story spotlight shines on Jared Banks who serves as MD/Morning Host for KUDD, Salt Lake City. Banks addresses a variety of issues including the unique nuances and competitive edges of his market, evaluating music, how co-hosting mornings makes him a more perceptive Music Director and much more.
