Messinger Mortuaries, Paradise Memorial Gardens, and their media partners KOY-AM, KSLX-FM, KFYI-AM, KKNT-AM, and KTAR-FM are doing a cell phone recycling drive to benefit the non-profit, “Cell Phones for Soldiers.”
People who would like to donate old cell phones may drop them off during normal business hours at any Messinger Mortuary location, Paradise Memorial Gardens, Arcadia Tavern, LifeBrokers, participating radio station location, and designated radio station events. For a complete listing of locations see our drop-off locations page.
They will start collecting phones on Monday, October 31st, and continue through Veterans Day, Friday, November 11th.
Cell Phones for Soldiers uses proceeds raised from cell phone donations to buy and distribute calling cards for U.S. troops stationed overseas, so that they can afford to call home.
Man o’ man there has been a ton of job shifts in the radio business lately. Shuffling at KSLX-FM, Dave Pratt (and his red underwear) at 103.9, etc, etc… View the Pipeline for the latest scoop in Arizona radio and television!
Doug Fairchild who has been at KNXV TV 15 for the past 6 months as an AE has moved his sales skills to KSLX. He is another new addition to the KSLX sales staff joining new hire Sandy Fairall. Doug is the son of Bridget Fairchild who is a senior AE with KPHO TV5, the apple doen’t fall far from the tree.
Please welcome back Sandy Fairall to the Phoenix radio world.
Sandy has joined the sales staff of KSLX as a senior account executive. You might recall that Bob Weaver recently took on sales managerial duties at KSLX.
Sandy previously worked at the MIX, KUPD, and radio stations in Los Angeles. Sandy is very seasoned and profressional sales executive. She will be a welcomed addition to an already great sales staff. Sandy’s first day in Monday July 25, 2011. Rock on!
It all started for Bob Weaver as GM of the NAU radio station many years ago. Today he’s not only the general sales manager of 93.3 KDKB-FM, but, it was announced last Friday he is now also the GSM of 100.7 KSLX-FM. Congratulations Bob!
Todd: "Thanks for the LSM job! Can I get a phone upgrade?"
With that change at KDKB, comes another change. Todd Tang who started his career in radio sales at KDKB several years ago (from the Arizona D-Backs) has been selected to be the KDKB local sales manager. All the best to Todd!
After several years as general sales manager at Phoenix classic rock station KSLX-FM, Jennifer Altheide has resigned. Word is that she is moving to California, where her husband has landed a new job. All the best to Jen! A replacement has not been named.
