Jay Michaels joins AC KVIL/Dallas as Program Director effective immediately.
Michaels will be responsible for all KVIL programming and talent. He will report to Brian Purdy, Senior Vice President and Market Manager for CBS Radio Dallas-Fort Worth.
“KVIL is on a new, strategic path,” Purdy said, “and we’re entrusting Jay with these iconic call letters. I’m confident that he will build upon the foundation which has been laid by Ron Harrell (CBS Radio Dallas-Fort Worth Vice President of Music Programming), who can now focus exclusively on KLUV and Jack FM. We couldn’t ask for a stronger team to guide our music stations in Dallas-Fort Worth.”
Michaels was most recently Program Director for KDMX-FM and KDGE-FM/Dallas-Fort Worth. Prior to that, he was Operations Director for WROX-FM and WUSH-FM/Norfolk. He has also worked in Los Angeles (KYSR-FM), Houston (KRBE-FM) and Austin (KHFI-FM and KDHT-FM).
"I am so excited to join the incredible team at KVIL,” Michaels said. “As a Texan, and as someone who lives this format, this is a dream job for me. I'm ready to help take KVIL to new heights!"
