An observant CNYRadio.com reader points out that Citadel Broadcasting of Syracuse has several job openings posted on a local job website. Among them: a posting titled "95X Program Director." But the current PD isn't leaving the station.
Fans of current PD/midday host Alexis have nothing to worry about. Citadel Operations Manager Tom Mitchell tells CNYRadio.com Alexis is stepping down as PD, but she will be "staying as midday host and will continue to contribute in many other ways behind the scenes." Alexis has been with the station for 17 years, serving as PD for the past five years.
Here's the 95X Program Director listing, as posted on syracusehelpwanted.com:
