KXT — officially KKXT/91.7 FM, but nobody but the FCC calls it that — announced Wednesday afternoon that Amy Miller is its new program director, replacing Mark Abuzzahab, who left in March.
This isn’t much of a surprise: Miller, who is also an on-air personality, was already assistant program director under Abuzzahab, and has been interim program director since he left.
Miller, who joined the station in October 2014, “has been instrumental in attracting national and local artists for KXT’s Live Sessions, booking the popular ‘Barefoot at the Belmont’ concert series and expanding the station’s online presence,” per a release.
Previous stops included WTYD in Williamsburg, Va. (Bruce Hornsby was one of the station’s owners), KFOG in San Francisco, and KZSC in Santa Cruz, Calif.
Here’s a brief Q&A from KXT’s website shortly after she joined the station.
Abuzzahab, who had been the station’s program director from June 2011 through March 2015, left to become program director for VuHaus, described as “the brand name for a new, non-profit video collaboration of public radio’s leading music discovery stations.” Check out VuHaus here.
