There’s a new addition over at 93.3 KGSR-FM.
Haley Jones has been named program director for the 23-year-old station, where she’ll handle a variety of not-so-sexy, but crucially important responsibilities such as helping select which songs to play and obsessing over Nielsen ratings.
"We scoured the country and spoke with some of the most talented program directors across America," said Chase Rupe, vice president of programming and operations for Emmis, KGSR’s owner. "When we found Haley, we knew she had exactly what we needed to continue building on the success of our beloved KGSR brand."
Jones, who is currently program director at a station in San Diego, Calif., is set to start work on May 5. She’s previously worked in both Seattle and San Francisco.
"As a Texas girl, I feel like I’m coming home to work with the inspiring team at KGSR," Jones said.
