Cumulus Media Memphis announced that Scott Gaines will debut as Afternoon Host of WGKX-FM/KIX 106 Memphis on Tuesday. Gaines takes over for Mark Billingsley who passed away last month. Gaines said, “I can’t even begin to explain the job and the shoes I need to fill. Mark Billingsley’s radio equity in the city of Memphis is completely unmatched. I can only hope to do half the job that he did and garner a quarter of the respect.”
Gaines will also assume new duties as on-air personality for the Mainstream Country format syndicated by Westwood One. He was formerly Afternoon Host of 95.5 NASH Icon in Nashville and was an on-air personality for NASH Icon Country programming syndicated by Westwood One. Prior to that, he held on-air positions on multiple stations in Dallas and Detroit. Gaines was named “Major Market Personality of the Year” by R&R Magazine. He is a voting member of the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music.
