iHeartMedia/Louisville announced Wednesday that Josh Everett has been named Director of Spoken Word Programming for its Kentucky-Indiana region. He'll be based out of Louisville.

"Josh understands the Spoken Word brands and our listeners' expectations," said iHeartMedia's Kentucky-Indiana Region President Earl Jones. "Kelly Carls and his team have built a strong foundation for WHAS-AM by providing quality news, weather and traffic coverage. We're confident that Josh will keep us moving forward and help us reach new listeners with all of our Spoken Word brands."
