ENTERCOM PROMOTES KAPLAN AND STEWART

Entercom has announced new leadership for its Los Angeles stations, following Kevin Weatherly stepping down from his role as SVP of Programming. Entercom SVP of Programming Mike Kaplan will assume Brand Manager responsibilities for KROQ, in addition to his current roles as the company’s Alternative Format Captain and Brand Manager for ALT 92.3 in New York.

Entercom has also named Ralph Stewart as Brand Manager for 93.1 JACK FM. Stewart previously served as Operations Manager for 93.1 JACK FM since 2010, and is currently the Brand Manager for 94.7 The Wave. Additionally, Chris Ebbott, Brand Manager, K-EARTH 101, and Yesi Ortiz will serve as interim programming leaders for 97.1 AMP Radio while a national search is conducted. Ebbott has led K-EARTH to record breaking ratings over the past five years, and Ortiz was named Music Director for the station in August 2018 and is also the host of the station’s afternoon show.

“Mike’s name is synonymous with alternative music and I’m delighted to welcome him back to Los Angeles. Along with Ralph, Chris and Yesi, this dynamic team will usher in the future of our brands in this important music market,” said Entercom Regional President Jeff Federman. “I’d like to thank Kevin for his years of dedicated contributions to our premier collection of brands and our company. He has certainly made his mark here and we wish him the absolute best in his new role.”

“I’m thrilled to expand my role to lead programming efforts for the World Famous KROQ, a fixture and taste maker in the Los Angeles music scene,” said Kaplan. “I look forward to working alongside Jeff and the team to continue delivering exceptional content and unforgettable live events for our loyal listeners.”
