Just five months after joining Entercom CHR “97.1 Amp Radio” KAMP Los Angeles for midday host duties, Yesi Ortiz has been promoted to Music Director of the station.
Ortiz joined KAMP in April at which time APD John Michael took on the Music Director duties until his exit from the cluster in June. She previously spent 12 years in middays across town at Mereulo Media Rhythmic CHR “Power 106” KPWR until exiting at the end of January.
Entercom, the #1 creator of live, original, local audio content in the United States, announced the appointment of Yesi Ortiz to the role of Music Director for 97.1 AMP Radio (KAMP-FM) in Los Angeles, effective immediately. Ortiz’s new role is in addition to her midday host duties, which she assumed when she joined the station in April 2018. Ortiz can be heard on-air weekdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. PT.
“We are very proud of Yesi’s on-air work since joining us earlier this year,” said Jeff Federman, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Entercom Los Angeles. “She has been a respected leader in the music community for many years and we look forward to her expanding her duties as 97.1 AMP Radio’s Music Director.”
“I remain so thankful for the opportunities AMP has given me since I joined the station,” added Ortiz. “I do not take this testament of trust lightly, and I remain committed to helping this station grow each and every day.”
Prior to joining Entercom, Ortiz was midday drive host and Assistant Music Director for Power 106FM in Los Angeles. She also held on-air roles at KVEG in Las Vegas and XHMORE-FM and KHTS in San Diego.
