At KBNJ/Corpus Cristi Station Manager morning host Joe Fahl is stepping down with Thursday his last day. Stepping up is afternoon host Juan Carlos Reyes as new Station Manage and morning host starting Monday 4/18. 

On the new position Juan Carlos told HisAir, “I mean it still feels surreal. Joe has been a staple at KBNJ for almost 30 years, so it’s going to be so strange not seeing him every day. I know lot of people are going to miss the mess out of him. I know I sure will. I’m so humbled by this new opportunity. KBNJ and the Coastal Bend community mean so much to me, and I pray I can continue being a light to the listeners. I’m on Cloud 20, right now!”

Juan Carlos joined KBNJ nearly 8 years ago as a volunteer, the next year he was a part-time employee, then  a year later was promoted to full-time, helping out with community promotions, concerts, and calls from record label reps and independent promoters.
