WNWV Names New PD

Various trade websites report that Elyria-Lorain Broadcasting has picked its replacement for long-time smooth jazz WNWV/107.3 program director Bernie Kimble.

She's Angie Handa, who comes to "The Wave" from a stint as assistant program director/music director of Clear Channel's Phoenix smooth jazz outlet, KYOT. Her resume includes a gig at a another smooth jazz station in Phoenix, and other earlier experience at AC and Hot AC outlets.

Phoenix is a good market for smooth jazz (or "smooth AC", or whatever it's officially being called now), and it sounds like "The Wave" got a very good hire in that format.

And though Handa told the folks at Radio & Records that she thanks the WNWV folks for "rescuing (her) from Phoenix in the summertime", let's see what tune she's singing in about 5 or 6 months...
