Kevin Douglass is the new director of engineering and IT for Bustos Media.
Douglass is leaving Hawaii, where’s he’s been for three years as DOE for H. Hawaii Media and general manger of their Kaui properties, and moving to Sacramento for the Bustos Media job.
The former Jacor and Clear Channel regional engineering director begins his new duties on Oct. 1.
Jay Meyers, president/CEO of Broadcast Management & Technology who also serves as interim CEO for Bustos, made the announcement.
Meyers joked in the release: “I wasn’t sure we could afford a guy like Kevin but when I told him I’d buy him all the pocket protectors he needed and he would no longer have to buy them out of the trunk of a beat up old Chevy from the pocket protector dealer on a street corner in the seedy area of town, he was in.”
Bustos Media owns and operates 25 radio stations and three television stations in California, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Utah, Colorado and Wisconsin. Bustos also produces three nationally syndicated radio formats targeting U.S. Hispanics.
Citing the economic downturn, in June, Bustos Media announced that the stations would be transferred to NAP Broadcast Holdings LLC, a company named for and controlled by its senior lenders — NewStart, Atalaya and Prudential — pending FCC approval.
Bustos now anticipates receiving FCC approval of the transfer in the next 30 days.
