Charlie Quinn 96.5 KYXY San Diego Program Director Chris PatykCBS AC 96.5 KYXY San Diego Program Director Charlie Quinn has announced his resignation after sixteen years with the station to devote more time to his family in Florida.

With Quinn’s exit, Chris Patyk, PD of sister CHR “Energy 103.7” KEGY will add oversight of KYXY, with Music Director Mark Blackwell taking on a greater role in the day to day programming.

The following memo from CBS Radio San Diego Market Manager Bob
Bolinger was sent for release:

It is with much sadness that I tell you Charlie Quinn is resigning as Program Director of KyXy to devote more time and
attention to his family in Florida. For the past 16 years, Charlie has been our leader in stewarding and evolving the KyXy brand. He has been a terrific strategist, coach and most of all friend. All with
tremendous effort, enthusiasm and class.

Charlie asked that I forward the attached personal note he wrote to all of you. We’re planning on giving Charlie a proper send off one evening, details to follow. In the meantime, join me in thanking Charlie for all he has done for us and CBS San Diego.

Moving forward, I am asking Chris Patyk to oversee both KEGY and KyXy, while looking to Mark Blackwell to take on an even greater role in the day to day programming of KyXy.
