Bo will join KQBT from Urban WBTP-FM in Tampa, where he served as Program Director and midday personality. With 20 years of radio experience, his career has taken him to programming stints in St. Louis, Savannah, Columbia and Detroit, prior to landing back with iHeartMedia Tampa in 2011.
"I have learned so much from my time and training in Tampa – let’s just say I’ve been living a dream. The Beat in Houston has such great potential and its launch last year was among the most admired and respected moves in the country," said Bo. "There is a synergy in the building at iHeartMedia Houston that I can't wait to be a part of."
"Bo’s track-record of success in the format speaks for itself," said Marc Sherman, Senior Vice President of Programming, iHeartMedia Houston. "He’s the leader our stellar on-air staff needs to bring the station to the next level in ratings and the partner our sales team needs to drive revenue. He’s going to be a huge asset for our team in Houston."
