KCMS Names New PD

KCMS/Seattle (Spirit 105.3) has hired KSBJ/Houston PD Ty McFarland for Program Director duties.  Ty replaces Matt Stockman who exited the KCMS PD chair last November to join EMF as KLOVE PD.

McFarland arrives at Spirir 105.3 with over 22 years of experience in the Contemporary Christian Music format, and had this to say, “I’m excited to be returning to the Pacific Northwest, am very optimistic for the future and looking forward to getting started with the CRISTA Media team.”

The hiring of McFarland concludes a national search for a Director of Programming to oversee not only KCMS and KCIS 630 in Seattle, but also KWPZ (Praise 106.5), which serves listeners in northwest Washington and southern British Columbia.

Previous to KSBJ McFarland has been with KTSY/Boise, ID. WGTS/Washington, DC (twice), KTFY/Twin Falls, ID. and K-LOVE.

Ty starts his new position next month.
