Ken Johnson Director of Urban Programming for Clear Channel Radio in Philadelphia has announced the appointment of Kelly Mac to the position of Assistant Program /Music Director for Power 99 (WUSL FM) and 105.3 WDAS FM. Johnson says, “I don’t know if you have heard, but radio has a whole new set of challenges today.

 

To be prepared to handle what’s ahead, fresh ideas and a new commitment is needed. In bringing in Kelly as APD/MD for WUSL/WDAS, I am keeping with what I have learned is the Clear Channel way – ‘to lead the charge’. Kelly is one of the stand outs in the medium markets, who is deserving of an opportunity in a major market. I am excited to watch her take on this challenge. “

 

Kelly Mac is looking forward to the move to Philadelphia. “This is most certainly the largest jump in my career thus far! It’s a great honor to be granted the opportunity to work with two of the most prominent urban radio stations on the East Coast. I am ready to “Go hard in the paint” (as the young folks say) and I look forward to assisting & working with Ken Johnson & the tremendous On Air Staff on both radio stations! God is good, all the time!”

In 1999, Kelly Mac started off in radio as a part time receptionist for Radio One, Inc. With time and hard work, she was later promoted to Programming Assistant for WZAK & WENZ in Cleveland. Her diligent work, dedication & perseverance eventually led to her dream to become an on air personality.

 

Mac later relocated to Charleston, SC as the Assistant Program Director, Music Director & Afternoon Show Host for WWBZ. After a year, WWBZ changed formats so in May 2004, Kelly joined Charleston’s legendary station, WWWZ as the Night Show Host, where after 2 books, she achieved record Arbitron Ratings of 30+ shares in her targeted demo (18-34).

 

After spending two years in the Charleston, SC Market, K-Mac moved to the Gulf Coast to co-host mornings at WBLX in Mobile, Alabama. While co-hosting “The Official Gulf-Coast Wake-Up Party,” Kelly was a key factor in maintaining #1 ratings for the show

 

During her successful run at WBLX, Kelly was recruited to WJMZ, Greenville, SC where she served as APD/MD/On Air Personality for nearly five years. Kelly Mac set record numbers at WJMZ & received many prestigious awards.
