  • KHEY/El Paso, TX PD/afternoon personality & Country sister KBQI/Albuquerque PD Michael Rivera, who joined KHEY last year (CAT 6/3/19) before adding KBQI duties later that month (CAT 6/18/19). He first joined the company’s Austin cluster in 2008. Reach Rivera here.
  • WQRB/Eau Claire, WI Brand Mgr./mornings & Classic Country sister WATQ afternoons Mike McKay, who had been with WQRB since 1991. Reach him here.
