As Entercom began operating the iHeartMedia Richmond cluster as part of their pending swap, another staffer is moving to another iHeartMedia cluster.
Tamo Sein, who had served as Music Director and Afternoon Host at Alternative “XL 102.1” WRXL, will move to Charlotte to serve as Assistant Program Director/Music Director and Midday Host at Alternative “106.5 The End” WEND. She follows Chuck ‘DZL’ Thompson who jumped from WRXL to WEND as Program Director/Afternoon Host in August.
iHeartMedia Charlotte announced today that Tamo Sein has been named Assistant Program Director, Music Director and Midday Host for 106.5 The END, Charlotte’s Alternative Rock, effective immediately.
Sein will broadcast from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays on 106.5 The END, including a variety of Alternative Rock hits from artists such as Foo Fighters, Coldplay, Kings of Leon and others. As Assistant Program Director and Music Director, she will assist in the day-to-day operations of the station’s music programming and scheduling of music logs as well as be responsible for all the station’s imaging and branding. Sein will report to Chuck “DZL” Thompson, Program Director for 106.5 The END.
“Tamo is a true talent and her passion and energy is infectious,” said DZL. “We’re beyond excited to bring her creativity and personality to the 106.5 The END audience in Charlotte and beyond. Tamo brings a wealth of programming experience and we look forward to her contributions to the programming team as we begin a new chapter in the storied history of 106.5 The End.
