In this new role, Safar is responsible for leading the direction of the music on The Current, The Current’s streams, and curation on digital platforms. This position will select music for airplay, manage the extensive music library, and maintain contacts with record labels and the music industry.
“David has a passion for our audience, and he has far exceeded the skills and scope of the role of a traditional radio music director,” said PD Jim McGuinn.. “As we expand The Current enterprise in new directions, David will lead us in crafting our sound and creating content that speaks to our audiences across our platforms.”
“I’m honored to be part of the talented team at The Current,” Safar said. “It’s a place where there is endless passion to serve music fans in our region and beyond. Our concert streams, podcasts, and live experiences are just some of the ways The Current has grown beyond the airwaves.”
Safar has been named Non-Comm Triple A Music Director of the Year nationally three times, and along with entire team from The Current, he has contributed greatly to the station winning the national Station of the Year award ten of the past 11 years.
