KEVIN WEATHERLY: TO INFINITY
AND BEYOND!

KROQ VP Programming Adds Infinity L.A. Stations To His Watch
His power is Infinite.

Hot off the station's historic #1 finish, KROQ VP Programming Kevin Weatherly has expanded his duties to include all of Infinity's L.A. stations.

All PDs from the company's area stations will now report to Weatherly as well as to their GMs, including news stations KFWB and KNX, classic rocker KCBS-FM, FM talker KLSX, oldies KRTH and smooth jazz outlet KTWX.

In the just-released spring 2001 Arbitron survey, KROQ was the first English-language station to reach the top spot in nearly six years.

Weatherly has been credited with establishing KROQ as the leading lifestyle/tastemaker station not only in L.A., but in the country. He's also succeeded in turning the "Kevin & Bean" morning show into one of the most powerful programs in the market.

Weatherly's first job in radio was as a 12-year-old at his family-owned KPIN in Casa Grande, AZ, in 1975 before segueing to his first professional job at KZZP Phoenix as an on-air personality and MD in 1983. He moved to KMEL S.F. as MD in '87, then to KIIS in L.A. in '88, also as MD. From '89-'92, Weatherly rose from APD to PD at Q106 San Diego before joining KROQ in May '92, when he first started taking Ivana's phone calls.

Weatherly has been honored by both LIFEbeat and the TJ Martell Foundation, as well as being named one of Entertainment Weekly's 100 Most Powerful People In Entertainment.

KROQ received a Marconi Radio Award as Rock Radio Station of the Year and was named Station of the Year by Rolling Stone magazine for two years running.
