With a nickname like “AntMan,” you’d expect radio vet Anthony Allen to keep busy. And that’s exactly what iHeartMedia has in mind for him as he assumes multiple roles after moving in from iHeart Phoenix. Allen has been named Program Director for Country stations KASE 101 and 98.1 KVET. In addition, he’ll be the weekday afternoon on-air personality for KASE 101. AntMan will report to Brian Gann, Senior Vice President of Programming for iHeartMedia Austin/San Antonio. Allen has been with iHeartMedia for 17 years.
“We are thrilled to have The AntMan leading our heritage Country brands, KASE and KVET,” said Matt Martin, President for iHeartMedia Austin/San Antonio. “He is a gifted programmer and an amazing talent. We could not be more excited to have him join the Austin team.”
“It’s been more than an honor to work with the talented team at 102.5 KNIX at iHeartMedia Phoenix,” said The AntMan. “I’m looking forward to taking everything I’ve learned there with me to Austin to lead these storied Country brands, KASE 101 and 98.1 KVET. It’s a return home for my family and I can’t wait to get started.”
