Rex Long has been named Program Director for iHeartMedia’s KHFI-FM in Austin. Long moves to Austin from Salt Lake City, and worked for the cluster in that market. Before that he was PD for iHeart’s KKMG-FM in Colorado Springs and KCDD-FM, KHXS-FM, and KTLT- FM in Abilene, Texas. He began his career in Canton, Texas, as the morning man for Canton Broadcasters.
Long reports to Matt Martin, Region President for iHeartMedia Austin/San Antonio, who said he’s very excited to invite Rex to Austin. “Rex’s abundance of energy, his creative ideas to connect with listeners, combined with his strategic vision to be a fabric of Austin’s culture, make Rex a perfect fit to continue building the KISS brand.”
“The energy and team at iHeartMedia Austin is one that I am beyond grateful to be a part of,” said Long. “Being able to come back home to Texas and work alongside this terrific team, The Billy The Kidd Show, and to help grow a heritage brand like KISS, is my childhood dream. Thank you iHeartMedia for giving me the opportunity.”
