E.W. Scripps' WKTI-FM (94-5 KTI Country) Milwaukee appoints Ryan Wild as the station's new Program Director, effective July 5. Wild comes to KTI Country from Omaha, where he served as Operations Manager for NRG Media's KQKQ-FM (Sweet 98), KOPW-FM (Power 106.9) and KOOO-FM (101.9 The Keg). Previously, Wild was OM/PD for WSSR and WFXF in suburban Chicago. Before that, he worked as a PD/MD of multiple formats at AOL/Slacker Radio.

"We're very fortunate to have someone of Ryan's experience on so many levels. Because KTI COUNTRY is a live and local station with a full airstaff, we needed a real leader who will not only keep the music sounding the best, but very importantly, create a greater overall 'listener experience' and a deeper connection with Wisconsin's country community," said Scripps Milwaukee Radio Operations VP/GM and VP/Radio News, Talk, Sports Programming Tom Langmyer. "Growing WKTI using our deep resources is very exciting - and we're thrilled to have Ryan take the new KTI COUNTRY to the next level as a bigger-than-life station."

"I'm thankful for the dream opportunity Tom Langmyer and the team at Scripps have given me to program KTI Country. There's so much potential, not only on the air, but with a full team ready to grow and build something magical and lasting. I can't wait to get to work and start building the future of KTI Country," added Wild. I was also told there would be plenty of beer and cheese at all times, so I was all in."
