Great Circle Radio/Flagstaff Downsizes Staff, Michaels
A round of budget cuts at Guyann Corp.’s Great Circle Radio in Flagstaff, AZ, forces out veteran programmer Pat Michaels (pictured) after five years in the post as PD/afternoons at Country KAFF-FM. Also out is Classic Rock KMGN-FM (The Mountain) 3-year Production Director and afternoon personality Tracey Jaymes, KAFF meteorologist Lee Born and KAFF morning producer Jason Graham. Rumors abound about a pending sale that did not transpire and that the stations are now under ownership control of a court appointed mediator. Roger Anderson’s bid to by the stations have apparently failed.
Before becoming PD in February, 2011, Michaels served in mornings and as Imaging Director for KAFF. He moved to afternoons from 2-7pm last September. (06-15-12)
