WKTI/Milwaukee Adds Wild As PD

NRG/Omaha's Hot AC KQKQ, Rhythmic Top 40 KOPW & Classic Rock KOOO OM Ryan Wild has been named PD for Scripps' WKTI/Milwaukee. The post has been open since last year's departure of Dayton Kane (CAT 10/7/16). Wild's prior stops include AOL/Slacker and stations in suburban Chicago, Des Moines and Quad Cities.

"Because KTI Country is a live and local station with a full airstaff, we needed a real leader who will not only keep the music sounding the best, but very importantly, create a greater overall ‘listener experience’ and a deeper connection with Wisconsin’s country community,” says Scripps/Milwaukee VP/GM Tom Langmyer.

Adds Wild, "There’s so much potential, not only on the air, but with a full team ready to grow and build something magical and lasting." He starts July 5; congratulate him here.
