The Beast 980 in Los Angeles has named veteran sports programmer Tom Lee as their new Program Director. Lee has spent time as PD for ESPN 103.3 in Dallas, WIP in Philadelphia, KJR in Seattle and Fox Sports Radio. He replaces Owen Murphy who exited last month. Lee’s first day is expected to be Monday March 30th.
KFWB Asset Trust Trustee Diane Sutter said, “Tom has achieved some of the highest ratings of all sports stations across the country. Our listeners will benefit from Tom’s invaluable skills in producing relevant content, top-notch talent and his experience in working with sports teams.”
Lee said, “Los Angeles sports fans are the greatest and perhaps the most underrated in America and their passion, the distinct L.A. attitude and our great sports teams will all be represented by The Beast 980. I’m very excited to get back to L.A. with the opportunity to program the only radio station uniquely built for home town fans.”
