SYRACUSE -- "AJ" is the new program director at Clear Channel Rythmic CHR Hot 107.9 (WWHT), according to AllAccess.com. His move to Syracuse will wrap-up a 12-year run at Cumulus-owned WBHT in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, PA, where he's been serving as PD/MD and afternoon host.
Hot 107.9's outgoing PD isn't leaving the building: Jason Furst is also the program director for FM Newsradio 106.9 and 570 WSYR. As reported right here in November, Furst is now also programming Rochester news/talker WHAM 1180. The arrival of AJ will allow Furst to focus strictly on the pair of news/talk stations.
