Alan Mason has returned to EMF as interim VP Radio after Randy Chase resigned last week. On January 3rd this year Alan “retired” and went on the board. Alan told HisAir, “When Randy resigned I was asked to fill in until they found a replacement for the VP of Radio role, which will become a C level position under a new name. I came off the board at that time because you can’t be board and staff at the same time.” EMF will be interviewing for the Chief Audio Office position now, and that individual will begin looking for a KLOVE PD.
