iHeartMedia Country 102.5 KNIX Phoenix has appointed Lois Lewis as its new APD/MD.
Lewis, who has already been voicetracking middays at KNIX, will relocate to Phoenix from Las Vegas where she held the same position at “95.5 The Bull” KWNR. She has also worked as Senior Director of Regional Promotion for Republic Nashville and MD/Night host at Cumulus’ 99.5 KIIM Tucson.
She fills the APD/MD role held by Anthony ‘Antman’ Allen until his promotion to PD in Austin last week.
iHeartMedia Phoenix’s 102.5 KNIX, Today’s Best Country & All Time Favorites, announced today that Lois Lewis has been named Assistant Program Director and Music Director, effective July 17th. iHeartMedia Phoenix has a strong cross-platform presence and includes a number of iconic brands and franchises — both broadcast and digital — including 102.5 KNIX, 99.9 KEZ, 104.7 KISSFM, Mix 96.9, 95.5 The Mountain, 550 KFYI, Fox Sports 910, 1230 KFYI2 – and produces legendary marquee events including Phoenix Cooks, Million Can Concert, and Secret Shows.
iHeartMedia has massive consumer reach and influence across multiple platforms and delivers more live programming than any other media company. Lewis will be responsible for record label relations, concert booking, as well as on-air content and music programming. She will also continue to host her highly rated Midday Show featuring 90’s @ Noon as well as hit Country music with her unique take on pop culture and entertainment news.
“I’ve worked with Lois for over 4 years and have always appreciated her tremendous attention to detail and great relationships,” said Steve Geofferies, Executive Vice President of Programming for iHeartMedia’s West Division. “She’s quickly becoming one of the best on-air talent we have in the Country format. Plus, I love the amazing energy she brings to the building.”
“Answering an ad in the ASU State Press nearly 20 years ago kick-started my journey in radio,” said Lewis. “Today, my dreams are being realized once again as I’m coming home to the legendary 102.5 KNIX. I couldn’t be more thrilled by this incredible opportunity and can’t wait to work alongside Steve Geofferies and the talented iHeartMedia Phoenix team.”
“I am thrilled to have Lois Lewis back in Phoenix where she began her career in radio. Not only is Lois a great talent, but clients love her genuine and passionate approach to everything she does.” said Arizona Region President Linda Little
