Louisville Radio: Ben Davis Promoted To OM For Alpha Media

Ben Davis
Alpha Media/Louisville has announced the promotion of morning host and WDJX 97.9 FM Program Director Ben Davis to Operations Manager for the five-station cluster there, including WGZB-FM, WDJX-FM, WMJM-FM, WXMA-FM and WGHL-FM.

Davis has been at WDJX since 2003 where he started as the night host. In 2008, he was promoted to morning host of "The Ben Davis & Kelly K Show," and later that year to Program Director.

Senior VP/Market Manager Dale Schaefer commented, "Ben Davis has been an incredible leader for our cluster for many years as our Program Director and morning show host for WDJX. With this promotion, he will be able to expand his leadership role to all five of our stations and help each one reach their full potential. Our entire staff is thrilled about Ben's promotion and look forward to working with him to make each station a greater success than what it has already achieved."

"Ben is one of those rare triple threats; he's great on the air, a fantastic manager and wonderful with clients. It is very rewarding to be able to promote from within Alpha and, Ben is a respected passionate leader who is beyond ready to help guide our Louisville cluster to the very tippy top... Go Ben!" added Executive VP/Programming Scott Mahalick.

Davis remarked, "I'm excited at the opportunity given to me by Alpha Media to grow our 5 amazing and diverse brands here in Louisville! I can't wait to get working with our dynamic team and look forward to growing our reach in 2015 and beyond. I need to thank Dale Schaefer, Phil Becker, Scott Mahalick, and Bill McElveen for this amazing opportunity."

While Davis will continue to host the "Ben and Kelly Morning Show" each day on WDJX, he will turn over the day-to-day programming responsibilities for WDJX to a new hire.
