Richard Trejo has managed KDAR in Oxnard during his 14 years with Salem. He started in radio in 1981 as an AE with KUZZ FM & KKXX FM in Bakersfield and went on to hold positions as GSM for Buck Owens Broadcasting, GM for the Park Lane Group, and GM at KDAR during his 37 years in radio. Trejo says his next gig will be "full-time grandfathering to our nine grandkids."
Salem VP Operations Manager Terry Fahy says he tried to talk Trejo out of retiring, but 'when he played the 'grandfather card,' I knew it was time for Richard to leave us to enjoy the fruits of his labor." Fahy adds, "His faithfulness, creativity, and love of Christian-formatted radio will be deeply missed."
