Country “102.7 The Coyote” KCYE Las Vegas has made a number of on-air and programming adjustments beginning with Kris Daniels re-assuming the program director role at the Beasley Media station. Last year, Daniels stepped down from day-to-day programming in order to focus on her role in the “Kris & the Mad Dog” morning show, where she continues as host.
“Kris Daniels has worked for Beasley Las Vegas for the past three-and-a-half years serving as PD/APD/MD and morning show host,” market manager Tom Humm said. “She has an impressive work ethic and passion for the program director position. She knows the market’s competitive landscape very well and is ready to focus on programming KCYE to new levels.”
To assist Daniels in the programming department, Beasley has hired Emmanuel “Ransom” Garcia as music director and afternoon drive host. Garcia, who is a 13-year market veteran, replaces assistant program director/afternoon driver Todd Michaels, who exits.
“Ransom Garcia’s music scheduling and social media skills are incredible and he will be enormously helpful,” Daniels said. “Ransom and I look forward to working on finding our perfect musical recipe for country listeners in Las Vegas.”
Finally, coming back to “The Coyote” for middays is Paul Knight, who stepped away from radio for the past year and a half. “The Coyote is in my blood,” Knight said. “I miss the energy, listener interaction, events and concerts. I wanted to come home and be a part of my 102.7 Coyote family.”
“Now that I have a seasoned, experienced support team around me, I am excited and rejuvenated about the opportunity to lead the Coyote,” Daniels enthused.
