ENTERCOM/SACRAMENTO SVP and Market Manager STACEY KAUFFMAN commented, "MICHAEL’s years of experience and successful track record make him the natural choice to bring his expertise and leadership to an already outstanding KUDL team. His passion, energy, creativity and optimism will serve both brands extremely well into the future."
BUHRMAN added, "I am truly humbled and honored for the opportunity and privilege to take on the amazing set of call letters of KUDL here in SACRAMENTO. To be able to drive KSFM and KUDL is not a responsibility I take lightly, and I thank STACEY KAUFFMAN, JOE CALGARO [ENTERCOM/SACRAMENTO OM], DOUG ABERNATHY [ENTERCOM Regional Pres. and Market Manager] and PAT PAXTON [ENTERCOM Chief Programming Officer] for this amazing opportunity."
BUHRMAN has been at KSFM since MAY 2018. Prior to taking the reins at KSFM, BUHRMAN had been at ENTERCOM Top 40/Rhythmic KQKS (KS1075)/DENVER, where he was APD/MD and KALC-HD2 (COMEDY 103.1)/DENVER, where he was PD.
RAINEY told ALL ACCESS, "It was an honor to serve at the helm of such a legendary station for the last 5 years. I’m thankful to continue to learn and grow from the programming side as well as leading a #1 rated morning show for the first time in my career. I couldn’t have done it without the amazing on-air team at KUDL, which I have no doubt, will continue their success in this new direction. In the meantime, I’m looking forward to the great winning opportunities that lie ahead." RAINEY can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or (415) 290-8033.
