Mark Edwards Returns To St. Louis As KEZK PD
January 22, 2004
Edwards, who has served as PD of KOSI/Denver for the last 16 months, has decided to exit the Entercom AC to take similar duties at Infinity AC KEZK/St. Louis. He fills the post vacated by Smokey Rivers, who is now programming WNEW/New York. Edwards is no stranger to St. Louis, having previously programmed Bonneville AC WVRV (The River) before going to Denver. He also spent nine years as VP/Programming for WLIT/Chicago, and has been OM of WSRS & WTAG/Worcester, MA and PD of now-defunct WEJM/Philadelphia. He will remain with KOSI until mid-February. "I leave here with extremely mixed feelings," Edwards told R&R. "KOSI is a great station with a wonderful staff, but this time my job as a father comes before my job as a PD." Edwards' family remained in St. Louis while Edwards worked at KEZK, and he says the medical needs of his two young sons is the primary reason for his move. "It was a difficult decision," he said, "but it's time for me to rejoin them and let my kids take advantage of the unique medical and educational opportunities only available there."
