Roger Allen Announces Retirement


After more than 40 years in the radio industry, Roger Allen, Cox Media Group’s Director of Programming for KONO AM/FM (San Antonio), is retiring, effective Jan. 11, 2019. Allen has worked in a variety of roles at stations throughout San Antonio, Dallas, Austin, and Salt Lake City. During his time with CMG, he was awarded Radio Ink’s Best Program Directors in Radio in 2011 and NAB Marconi Award Winning Classic Hits Station of the Year in 2015.

“Roger Allen operates at the highest level of performance and is manager of a team that seems to defy gravity — a true testament to his industry knowledge, skills, and leadership,” said Ben Reed, VP/GM for CMG San Antonio. “KONO is among the highest-rated brands and so much of this station’s success can be attributed to Roger.”
