Cumulus has promoted Blake Taylor to PD of KMJ- 580 AM and KMJ 105.9 FM in Fresno. Taylor has been morning man, morning drive news anchor, news director and APD at KMJ AM/FM since 2007. Taylor came to Fresno from Bakersfield, CA, where he was PD for KERN for five years. Prior to that, he was PD at KBTK in Albuquerque.

Taylor said: "I've served as news director at KMJ for almost seven years now, and we've experienced some amazing growth during that time. But there are many more opportunities ahead as we continue to grow our audience while maintaining our position as the go-to breaking news station in California's Central Valley. I look forward to taking on the challenge!"
