Byron Kennedy Joins Wheelhouse

CBS Radio/Sacramento VP/Programming and Country KNCI PD Byron Kennedy will join Wheelhouse as Dir./West Coast Regional Promotion July 11. He succeeds Bill Snickers, who departed in May (CAT 5/24). "I really believe in this label, its artists and the many talented and passionate people who work there," Kennedy says. "It has been an honor to spend the last 15 years with CBS Radio. I have learned so much from so many there and words cannot express how grateful I am [for allowing me] to call my passion a job." The move is a reunion of sorts with former KNCI MD Matt Vieira, who joined Stoney Creek in May of last year (CAT 5/5/15). Reach Kennedy at 916-798-1025 or here. Back at CBS, cluster AC KYMZ and Top 40 KZZO PD Chad Rufer will handle KNCI programming until a successor is named. Reach him here.
