KFMK Names New PD

KFMK/Austin ( SPIRIT 105.9) morning personality Steve Sunshine has added the role of Program Director to his duties. Meanwhile Lisa Keil will now serve as Promotions & Marketing Director.

KFMK has operated without an inhouse PD since Kevin Peterson exited the station Dec 2015. At the time Christa Media sister station KCMS/Seattle PD Matt Stockman handled the programming. Last week Stockman announced he is joining EMF as KLOVE PD. 

Steve Sunshine has co-hosted KFMK’s “Mornings with Steve & Amy” show for 7 years. This will be his second tour of serving as both on-air talent and Program Director for KFMK. A 30 year veteran of the radio industry, Sunshine has excelled in the Christian Contemporary format over the last 16 years.

Lisa Keil moves into the Promotions & Marketing Director role after 4 years with KFMK. In her new role, she will plan, create and execute station events and campaigns to integrate the SPIRIT 105.9 brand into the core of central Texas, where KFMK has served listeners since 2010.

General Sales Manager Mel Jones stated, “We are fortunate to have a talent like Steve that is capable of finding the same level of success as a Program Director that he has found as an on-air talent. And under Lisa’s leadership, SPIRIT 105.9 will continue to get more and more engaged with our listeners in the greater Austin community.”
