On Thursday morning (May 14), program director Kevin Welch was asked to leave Entercom triple A KMTT (the Mountain)/Seattle. Welch, who had been in the PD chair since April 2007, was taken aback at the news.
"The station was making great strides in the new target-audience direction we were steering the station," Welch told R&R, "so, I don't think that was the reason for the company's decision. Corporate simply told me they wanted to make a change."
Welch also expressed his disappointment in not being able to work with the station's newly named GM, Jack Hutchinson, saying, "He and I really seemed to see things the same way, and I was looking forward to working with him."
Prior to joining KMTT, Welch had been the APD/MD at CBS Radio triple A KINK/Portland, Ore., for nine years.
