Jon Manley takes over as Assistant Program Director/Music Director for Chicago Alternative Rock station 101 WKQX. Manley, a Chicago native, will also be heard on the station weekday evenings. He was previously APD/Music Director and afternoon drive host for Alt station 107.7 The End/KNDD-FM in Seattle. Prior to that, he served in the same capacities at Alt-formatted X107.5/KXTE-FM in Las Vegas.
Marv Nyren, Vice President/Market Manager, Cumulus Chicago, said: “The beauty of 101 WKQX is that when a position becomes available, the talent lines up. Jon epitomizes the type of talent we were looking for. He’s smart, has an outstanding knowledge of music, and is a Chicago guy coming home who knows exactly what the audience wants. He’ll be a rock star on the air and an alt rock star working with Troy Hanson on the product.”
