Scott Roddy To Program KWJJ/KRSK Portland
After exiting Hubbard Radio’s Variety Hits “106.5 The Arch” WARH St. Louis last week, Entercom has appointed Scott Roddy as OM/PD for Country “99.5 The Wolf” KWJJ and Hot AC “105.1 The Buzz” KRSK Portland.
Roddy had been in St. Louis since February 2016 as PD of Country 92.3 WIL and then added the WARH duties later that year. He passed the WIL duties to then APD/MD Danny Montana at the start of this year.
Prior to coming to St. Louis, Roddy programmed Saga AC 104.1 KAFE Bellingham WA from 2013-2016 and spent eight years in Indianapolis as APD/MD of Country “97.1 Hank-FM” WLHK and later as PD of Variety Hits “107.9 The Track” WNTR.
He fills the opening at KWJJ created by the exit of Mike Moore in August. No word yet on the status of KRSK PD Brian Bridgman with the company.
Entercom, a leading media and entertainment company and one of the two largest radio broadcasters in the U.S., today announced Scott Roddy as Program Director and Operations Manager for 99.5 The Wolf (KWJJ-FM) and 105.1 The Buzz (KRSK-FM) in Portland, effective October 7.
“Scott has an impressive track record programming leading stations and we’re fortunate to add him to the team,” said Kim Martinez, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Entercom Portland. “I am confident his proven leadership will enable him to step in and immediately enhance the programming efforts for our stations.”
“Kim Martinez is building a world class operation at Entercom Portland and I’m excited to join her team,” said Roddy. “Her passion for our industry, audience, investors and local team is unparalleled. I’d like to thank Kim, Pat Paxton [Chief Programming Officer, Entercom], Doug Abernethy [Regional President, Entercom], Dave Richards [Senior Vice President of Programming, Entercom] and Tim Roberts [Program Director, 98.7 The Breeze] for the opportunity. I’m stoked to join the iconic Wolf and to bring some electricity back to the Buzz.”
Roddy previously served as a Program Director for Entercom from 2009 to 2013 before holding the same position for Saga Communications and, most recently, for Hubbard Broadcasting in St. Louis. Other stops include Oasis Radio Group, Susquehanna Radio and Emmis Communications.
