KSBJ Names New Program Director

Hope Media Group announced today its selection of Randy Fox as the new KSBJ/Houston Program Director. Fox comes with over 20 years of industry experience working for companies like CBS Radio, iHeart Media and American General Media. Fox succeeds Troy West who exited for the APD position at EMF in Nov 2021.

“I’ve known Randy since my days in Sacramento,” shares Hope Media Group Senior Director of Content, Shawn Farrington. “He’s got a great reputation, is well loved by those he has worked with, and has led successful brands. He’s got a big heart for Jesus too – and I couldn’t be happier to see him joining Hope Media Group to lead KSBJ into its next season.”

Most recently Fox served as Program Director at KISS 97.3 & Mix 105.1 in Albuquerque. Randy Fox believes that when you connect with listeners emotionally, no matter the format or market, it builds a relationship with the listener and impacts peoples’ lives.

“I feel very blessed to be joining HOPE Media Group,” says Fox. “It is a great honor to be a part of bringing hope to the Houston community and help them know what Christ’s life changing love can do.  I would like to thank the KSBJ family for their confidence in me to serve with them in their vision, faith-driven mission, and commitment to being a light in the community.”

Ron Harrell, WAYMedia’s Vice President, Brand and Content shares, “Randy brings fresh ears and perspective to the CCM format. His desire to join the passionate talent at KSBJ will have a strong impact on the ministry of Hope Media Group. I’m excited the coming merger between Hope Media Group and WAYMedia means I will get to share this journey with him.”

Fox will begin his new assignment at KSBJ in April. 

KSBJ is part of Hope Media Group, a Houston-based, non-profit media organization that is a family of ministries including KSBJ, NGEN Radio, HOPE ON DEMAND, Special Events, and Amen: The Prayer App. Hope Media Group’s mission is to be the voice of Hope connecting people more deeply to God.
