“Currently, we’re living in a world where music tastes have collided and consumers are more interested in the authenticity of the music blend rather than the genre,” said Jeff Federman, Regional President, Entercom Southern California. “I have to credit a member of our team for suggesting the development of a station that encompasses today’s “festival tent” feel with rhythmic, dance, hip hop and EDM all being represented.”
Jeremy Reyes, known as DJ Jeremiah Red, is the station’s program director.
