Thomas also spent five years as Operations Manager for then Journal Broadcast Group's Tucson cluster after programming Journal's Hot AC KSRZ-FM (Star 104.5)/Omaha.

TKRN Sr. VP Affiliations Ed Douglas said, "Having a pro of the stature of Darla Thomas join our affiliate team is a dream come true. She understands the AC world of radio and values the commitment Tom Kent has made to making great radio."

Thomas added, "I've know Tom for years and I'm so impressed by the network he's built across the country. When Ed asked me to join the team I just couldn't resist the chance to help build the TKRN brand and make it even bigger. I'm excited to get started."
