Adam Rivers has been named PD for iHeart New Haven, responsible for overseeing KC101, 100.9 The Beat, ESPN Radio 1300 WAVZ, and News/Talk 960 WELI. He will report to Joey Brooks, SVP of Programming for iHeartMedia Hartford and New Haven, and will continue to serve as an afternoon host for KC101 (Bridgeport/New Haven, CT).
“Over the past several years, Adam has truly been the backbone here at KC101 and a staple in Connecticut radio,” said Steve Honeycomb, Region President for iHeartMedia Hartford. “Adam’s years of experience and the way he engages with his listeners go far beyond his afternoon drive show and we couldn’t be happier to see him evolve into this new role here in New Haven, Connecticut.”
Rivers has served as the APD and MD for iHeartMedia Connecticut’s KC101 and KISS 95-7 since 2013. He’s also been PD for KISS 98.3 in Winchester, VA, a swing talent for WMAS-FM in Springfield, MA, and APD/MD and night host for WILI-FM in Willimantic, CT.
