WECK is making a switch at Production Director by welcoming Mark Jensen, who replaces Frank Miller. Miller is leaving to pursue other opportunities in the field of Information Technology.
Jensen is a former on-air personality and worked in production at WYSL, WJYE, and WGR. He also is a professional sound engineer and is part of a national voiceover talent agency. Jensen begins at the station on Friday, September 29.
WECK owner Buddy Shula said, “I would like to thank Frank Miller for his years of service to WECK. He is an incredible professional. He is a tough person to replace, and I had to call down to Florida to find a replacement for Frank.”
