Billy will lead by example as “Billy the Kid” weekdays 3p-7p on Wild Country 96.5.

“Billy just gets it”, says Michael Boldt, General Manager of the three station cluster. “I knew after my first conversation with Bill that he was truly in love with radio and has the drive to help guide our stations in the right direction. He’s a great find and we’re thrilled to have him”, Boldt said.

“I am so excited to be given the opportunity to work in such a unique situation. Not only with amazing hardworking people, but the challenge of super-serving multiple markets, some with a bilingual approach. This is going to be a lot of fun! I’d like to thank Tim Martz for bringing me in for this important task”, said Bill Teed.

“Also, over the years I’ve had amazing learning experiences and the support of great people in our industry like Tighe Jensen, JR Reitz, Mark Stachowski, Rodney Rainey, Steve Mcvie Solomon, John Garabedian, just to name a few. These people made it possible for me to have the skill set needed for these great brands”, added Teed.

We knew it would take some time to replace our previous programming specialist of 15 years, but we held out for the perfect fit. Billy Teed has a passion for radio that is rarely seen these days and has a bright, strategic mind to back that up. We are looking forward to great things from Billy!
