Entercom has announced Molly Cruz as Assistant Program Director and Music Director for Top 40 103.7 KISS-FM (WXSS-FM) in Milwaukee, effective immediately. Cruz will continue in her position as midday drive host, Assistant Program Director and Music Director for sister station 99.1 The Mix. On-air personality JMatt will assume the roles of midday drive host for 103.7 KISS-FM and Digital Program Director for the cluster, which also includes 105.7 FM The Fan (WSSP-AM). In addition, 99.1 The Mix also welcomed on-air personality Aaron Carreno as afternoon drive host from 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. CT.
“Big things are happening in the Milwaukee cluster,” said Chuck Sullivan, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Entercom Milwaukee. “Molly is ready to dominate her expanded role as Assistant Program Director and Music Director. Aaron is a top-notch personality whose experience will bring improvement to The Mix’s afternoon drive. And JMatt is going to take our cluster to new heights from a digital perspective.”
“I am so humbled by this opportunity to continue the success of WXSS and WMYX alongside Brian Kelly,” said Cruz. “Both stations have a deep history in the Milwaukee community and I can’t wait to have a hand in delivering top programming to our listeners.”
Prior to joining Entercom, Cruz held the role of afternoon drive host for WZSR in the Chicago area. She will succeed Nathan Graham, who assumed the role of Program Director for sister station 98.7 AMP Radio (WDZH-FM) in Detroit.
“I grew up in Brookfield and my favorite radio station has always been 103.7 KISS-FM,” added JMatt. “I am beyond excited to have earned my dream job with this team, at this station specifically, and I sincerely thank David Moore and Leigh McNabb for giving me a chance on the radio, and Nathan Graham and Brian Kelly for their guidance.”
JMatt was most recently on-air during 103.7 KISS-FM’s weekend drives. Prior to that, JMatt served as Promotions and Marketing Director for sister station Mix 105.1 (WMHX-FM) in Madison, WI.
“To say I am thrilled about joining the team at WMYX is an understatement, as I first began my career there a decade ago,” said Carreno. “So many great friends and personalities have graced the hallways of Entercom Milwaukee, and I’m truly looking forward to returning home. Thanks to Chuck Sullivan, Brian Kelly and Molly Cruz for bringing back the boy to Wisconsin.”
Carreno returns to 99.1 The Mix after previously serving as an on-air personality and Production Assistant for the station from 2008 to 2010. Prior to joining Entercom, Carreno held the role of afternoon drive host for sister station 99.7 The Point (KZPT-FM) in Kansas City.
