ENTERCOM SAN DIEGO NAMES CHRIS PATYK PD OF FM 94/9 (KBZT-FM)
San Diego, CA – Entercom San Diego announced today that Chris Patyk has been named PD of Alternative FM 94/9 (KBZT FM)
Chris has had a long and solid career working and programming in Los Angeles (KYSR-FM/Star 98.7), Phoenix (the Edge and KZON-FM) and Portland (KUFO). In 2013 Chris moved to America’s Finest City to program KEGY-FM (Energy). Three years later, he took over programming duties for A/C KYXY-FM. Chris was named PD of KBZT when Kevin Callahan (Entercom San Diego OM/PD KSON) took over interim PD duties at KYXY-FM after the recent Entercom/CBS Radio merger was complete.
“It was a no brainer to elevate Chris Patyk to this role based on his experience” said Entercom San Diego OM Kevin Callahan. ““I’m thrilled, excited and about every other adjective you can think of to be part of this amazing Entercom alternative team that loves radio and the music. Working alongside of our APD/MD Jeremy Pritchard and massively talented on-air and promotional team is going to be a lot of fun!” said Chris recently. “Thank you to Bob Bollinger, Kevin Callahan, Pat Paxton and Chris Oliviero for giving me the keys. Let’s take over San Diego!”
