J.B. King
KLUC/Las Vegas APD/MD J.B. King renews another multi-year contract with the CBS Radio Mainstream CHR station. "98.5 KLUC and Las Vegas has been home for over 14 years and I am glad to be continuing my career with CBS Radio here in the greatest, most active city in America," said King. "There’s nowhere that I’d rather be and no other station that I’d rather work for than KLUC…and no other Program Director I’d rather work for than Cat Thomas."
     KLUC PD Thomas, added, "J.B. has been a staple to the Las Vegas community and to KLUC for so long, I thought he just came with the building!  Seriously, J.B.’s passion and dedication is the key to his success and longevity in the most competitive CHR battle in America.  His dominance on air as the most listened to radio personality in Las Vegas and his hand on the tiller as our Assistant P.D./Music Director makes him a Franchise Player on the legendary KLUC team."

Kevin Cruise steps down from his morning host duties at CHR/Rhythmic KUUU/Salt Lake City for an as yet to be named position. Over the course of his 12 years with the station, Cruise has also served as MD, APD and PD.

WRIF/Detroit APD/MD Suzy Cole exits the Motor City Rock station for a position with Beats By Dre in Los Angeles. Cole spent eight years at the Greater Media station and says, "While I am very excited for this new adventure and for what lies ahead, I am also very sad to be leaving the place that I have felt most "at home" in my life, WRIF. I love the station and even more so the phenomenal people that I have gotten to work with over the last 8 years. I love everything about WRIF and lived, breathed, ate and slept the radio station because I believed in it that much, and will continue to do so from afar. Thank you to Greater Media, WRIF and especially Mark Pennington for the years of support, love and encouragement."
