Haskell Joins Lincoln In Denver
Lincoln Financial Media has hired programmer Eddie Haskell who will return to Denver as PD at Country station KYGO-FM. Haskell comes from Cumulus in Albuquerque, where he was Operations Manager. He has programmed heritage Country station KRST-FM for the last nine years and served as the station's afternoon air personality. In addition, he supervised Country stations in the West region under previous owner Citadel. He has also been program director at KKAT-FM/Salt Lake City, KDJM-FM/Denver, WYCD-FM/Detroit, and WXLK-FM/Roanoke.
"Eddie’s impressive background programming both heritage Country stations and format challengers taking on heritage brands makes him battle-tested,” said Bob Call, Senior VP/General Manager of LFM/Denver. "From helping to sign on Young Country WYCD years ago, to defending and building the success of a great heritage brand like KRST, Eddie is a proven programmer who will help guide KYGO going forward."
"I could not be more excited," said Haskell. "KYGO is a legendary radio station and Lincoln Financial Media is one of the best companies in the industry. I can't wait to be back in the Mile High City and put KYGO on a nice upward trajectory."
Haskell will begin his new position on February 11.
