The move is effective May 11.
Nankival is a veteran radio programmer whose resume includes stops in Dubuque, Cedar Rapids, Saginaw, MI, Madison and Milwaukee. He most recently had Director of Sales for La CRosse Radio Group.
“Our search for the kind of sales leadership Tom brings has been extensive," Adama Radio CEO Ron Stone said.
"He is all about results and not afraid to dig in and 'get busy with the troops,' which is a rare asset these days. His hands-on approach and belief in traditional radio is what has been missing in Las Cruces. We have great products here ... and Tom is a manager who knows how to sell them.”
“I could not be more thrilled and proud to be chosen to lead Aadam's Radio Group’s cluster in Las Cruces," Nankival said. "Adams is a company with a notable radio past, and an exceedingly bright future. Ron Stone has assembled an impressive group of stations and impressive people to lead them. Very happy to be on the team.”
The Adams cluster consists of Country KGRT 103.9 FM, Classic Hits KSNM 98.7 FM, Top 40 KHQT 103.1 FM and Sports KWML 570 AM The Ticket.
