Easton to WKKT:

As reported via Breaking News, programming vet Shelly Easton has been named PD for iHeartMedia WKKT/Charlotte, effective Monday (10/18). She fills the vacancy created by the departure of Chuck "DZL" Thompson in August (CAT 8/20). Easton left her role as then-Entercom/Philadelphia VP/Music Programming earlier this year (CAT 1/4). She previously programmed Country WXTU prior to Entercom divesting it to Beasley in 2018. Easton's stops also include WCTO/Allentown, PA and WRBT/Harrisburg, PA.

"Shelly's wealth of format knowledge and proven track record sets her apart in driving ongoing advancement of this successful brand," says iHeartMedia/Charlotte SVPP A.J., to whom she reports. Adds Easton, "I am so thrilled to be back in the Country format. To be able to rejoin the company where I launched my programming career, is a dream come true." Reach Easton here.
