Ryan Kramer, morning host at 102.3 The Beat, is assuming more responsibilities – and, hopefully, getting a bigger paycheck.

Kramer, who made his Austin debut two years ago, is taking over program director duties for The Beat and sister iHeartMedia radio station AM 1300 The Zone.

“I couldn’t be happier to promote Ryan Kramer to program director for 102.3 The Beat and AM 1300 The Zone in Austin,” said Patrick Davis, senior vice president of programming for iHeartMedia stations in Austin and Dallas. “He has been programming both of the stations for a while now and he has made both of them better under his watch. This is a well-deserved promotion.”

Before arriving in Austin, Kramer spent eight years at a station in Fort Collins, Colo.

“I’m so thankful and humbled by the opportunity that Patrick Davis has given me,” he said. “Special thanks to Patrick and (iHeartMedia executives) Jay Shannon, Brad Hardin and Pam McKay for the faith they have in me and the chance to lead 102.3 The Beat and AM 1300 The Zone to the next level.”
