Flakus Leaves Chicago
Lost another radio pro this week. This one is heading west. From the RAMP newsletter...
Entercom Alternative KNDD (107.7 The End)/Seattle has managed to nail down the services of major market Alt/Rock star Walter Flakus as APD and afternoon drive personality, effective August 6. Flakus is inbound from Chicago, where he spent the past five years as APD/MD and evening entertainer at Cumulus Alternative WKQX. He was also MD for the late, great WLUP (The Loop)/Chicago, and he previously worked for SiriusXM and the former WHRL-FM/Albany, NY. "We're thrilled to welcome such a talented programmer to the 107.7 The End team," said Jack Hutchison, SVP/Market Manager, Entercom Seattle. "Walter brings extensive experience and leadership both on and off the air, which will benefit listeners and partners."
