Hall Communications promotes WKOL Program Director Mark Knight to Operations Manager for WKOL, WOKO, WBTZ, WIZN and WJOY in Burlington-Plattsburgh, VT-NY. He fills the void left after Matt Grasso departed in August for a position outside of radio. Knight is a 28-year veteran of Hall communications as a PD and air talent at WKOL and WOKO.
"Mark has shown great leadership ability throughout his career and is the right choice for this position," said Hall Executive Vice President and Burlington-Plattsburgh Market Manager Dan Dubonnet. "He understands what it takes to keep our brands at the top of the ratings."
Additionally, the company made the following promotions:
WOKO morning host and Assistant PD Bill Sargent was promoted to WOKO Program Director. Sargent joined WOKO in 1998 as an evening personality. He has co-hosted WOKO's "Morning Roundup" for the last 20 years.
WBTZ and WIZN Assistant PD and Music Director Kevin Mays is elevated to Program Director of both stations. Mays has been with the group since 2004 and will continue to serve as MD for both stations.
WIZN morning host Devon McGarry will add the APD title for both WIZN and WBTZ. McGarry has been with the Hall stations since 2013.
Dubonnet added, "Mark will work closely with Bill, Kevin, Devon and the rest of our outstanding programming and promotions staff to keep the Hall Radio Group the dominant cluster in the market."
