Welcome Back Garett Michaels
By Joe Nelson
GARETT MICHAELS RETURNS TO SAN DIEGO, NAMED KFMB-FM PROGRAM DIRECTOR.
SAN DIEGO, CA – Veteran radio programmer and personality Garett Michaels has been named Program Director at KFMB-FM.
Michaels’ San Diego radio roots date back to 2002 as the original and founding Program Director of KBZT-FM, a position he held for nearly a decade. He most recently spent two years as the Program Director of KNDD-FM “107.7 The End” in Seattle.
“After spending the last few months exploring my strategic options, I couldn’t be more excited to return to San Diego,” said Michaels. “It's an honor to be a part of KFMB, call letters that have such an important history and heritage here. Also, I’m stoked to be working with the legendary Dave, Shelley and Chainsaw, San Diego’s best and highest rated morning show. A huge thanks to Elisabeth Kimmel for making this possible.”
“We welcome Garett back home to San Diego,” said SDLocal Vice President / General Manager Gregg Wolfson. “With his large market experience, knowledge of San Diego, and his proficiency in CHR, AC, Alternative, Triple A, Rock, and Country, he is the perfect fit for the future format of KFMB-FM.”
