“I am so excited to be part of the team at 102.7 The Coyote in Las Vegas,” said Kurkjian. “I can’t imagine doing anything but local radio. I’m looking forward to connecting every morning with the casino workers getting off third shift, the mom’s taking their kids to school and everyone in between. I am eager to get out and about in Las Vegas, especially coming from the frozen tundra of the Northeast!”
“I am more than thrilled to be joining Jeff on team Coyote, while still being able to call Beasley Las Vegas my home,” said Montgomery. “We are going to have a lot of fun and I’m back to where I’m most comfortable, waking up at 3:30am! I am extremely thankful to Dennis Gwiazdon, John Candelaria, and Shawn Stevens for this amazing opportunity.”
“We’re firmly committed to making KCYE-FM, The Coyote, a market leader and the #1 country station in Las Vegas,” said VP/Market Manager Dennis Gwiazdon. “Jeff’s addition to our team puts us in the fast lane to get there even faster. It’s going to be fun to watch how he and Aimee create some magic on the air.”
“Beasley Media Group is always looking for the best talent in radio and Jeff is the real deal,” said KCYE Program Director Shawn Stevens. “He’s smart, versatile and extremely passionate about radio. Jeff and Aimee will bring fun and Entertainment to our LOCAL community, known as the Entertainment Capital of the World.”
