Cumulus Media appoints veteran programmer and air personality Scott Gaines as Assistant Program Director and afternoon host for Country WKHX-FM (Kicks 101.5) Atlanta. Gaines moves from the company's co-owned cluster in Memphis, where he was afternoon host for Country WGKX-FM (Kix 106). Gaines will debut on Kicks 101.5 on September 5, weekdays from 3-7pm. Previously, he served as afternoon personality for sister WSM-FM (95.5 NASH Icon). He was also APD/MD and afternoon host for WDTW-FM (106.7 THE FOX) Detroit.

Cumulus Atlanta VP/Market Manager Sean Shannon said, "It's exciting to see a person of Scott's caliber join Kicks 101.5. Our listeners, clients and partners and staff all win with this move."

PD Scott Lindy added, "The high level of Scott's talent, experience and dedication to the craft of creating great radio is a perfect fit for Kicks 101.5. Our listeners are in for a treat and we're gaining a very strong internal player. Scott will do great things in Atlanta."

Gaines said, "I want to thank Morgan Bohannon and Duane Shannon for making Cumulus-Memphis a great place to work. My thanks go out to Mike McVay and John Dimick for affording me this opportunity. I've only met Cumulus-Atlanta VP/Market Manager Sean Shannon once in my life and can already see why his leadership has created a winning team."
