As Program Director for KHFI 96.7 KISS FM, Long will be responsible for overseeing the day- to-day operations of the station’s music, on-air personalities, programming, promotions and digital operations. He will report to Matt Martin, Region President for iHeartMedia Austin/San Antonio.
“Rex’s abundance of energy, his creative ideas to connect with listeners, combined with his strategic vison to be a fabric of Austin’s culture make Rex a perfect fit to continue building the KISS brand,” said Martin. “We are very excited to welcome Rex to ATX.”
“The energy and team at iHeartMedia Austin is one that I am beyond grateful to be a part of,” said Long. “Being able to come back home to Texas and work alongside this terrific team, ‘The Billy The Kidd Show’ and to help grow a heritage brand like KISS is my childhood dream. Thank you iHeartMedia for giving me the opportunity.”
