Continuing the ever-swinging door of PDs . . Rick's legacy at KISS includes firing what was left of the original staff and promoting more interns than ever before.

Now someone even more obscure from an even smaller market who will take an even lower paycheck can add market 3 to their resume. The next KISS PD will surprise just about everyone.

(from Robert Feder)With WKSC-FM (103.5) riding higher than ever in the ratings, owner Clear Channel has no shortage of candidates to replace Rick Vaughn as program director of the Top 40 station. Vaughn shifted last week to program director of WKLS-FM, WWVA-FM and WWLG-FM in Atlanta. “Rick was instrumental in the growth of Kiss FM over the last four years,” said Tony Coles, vice president of programming and operations for Clear Channel Chicago. “He leaves the station in great shape and well positioned for continued growth under our next PD. Because this is such a great career opportunity, we are fortunate to have many highly qualified programmers interested in the position. I'll be spending the next few weeks speaking with folks inside and outside of our organization as we look for the right match.”
