Stone Jumps to 91X
By Joe Nelson
MATT STONE NAMED A.P.D. AT 91X
SAN DIEGO, CA – San Diego’s alternative rock station 91X (XTRA-FM) has named Matt Stone as Assistant Program Director. Stone will also host the nighttime on-air shift from on 91X.
Stone has most recently been the Program Director and afternoon-drive on-air host at KPRI-FM in San Diego. Stone’s radio resume has taken him from Santa Barbara, San Diego, Hawaii, and back again to San Diego.
“I have wanted to work for 91X since I was a wee lad on the east coast just getting started in radio,” said Stone. “Now to have the opportunity to work with a group of legends like Robin Roth, Oz Medina and Halloran is a dream come true.”
With the APD position in place, 91X Program Director Mike Halloran has finished revamping the 91X line-up after assuming PD duties just four weeks ago.
“The pile of resumes for this position was inches thick, and I contacted candidates all over the place, often times when they least expected to hear from me,” said 91X Program Director Halloran. “Matt stood out as an individual who knows what 91X means to San Diego, knows what the listeners want, and knows to work his ponytail off. We will be adding a new chapter to 91X’s 31+ years of dominance in San Diego.”
91X is owned and operated by Local Media San Diego, LLC, a privately held San Diego-based company. LMSD also operates Z90.3 (XHTZ-FM) and Magic 92.5 (XHRM-FM).
