Gary Kurtz will take over sales for Hartford-based 102.9 The Whale, Hartford?s only Classic Rock station, and WDRC AM/WMMW/WWCO and WSNG "Talk of Connecticut." Kurtz comes to Connoisseur with plenty of experience, having served as GM at WFNX in Boston, GSM of Mike-FM Boston, and senior AE for CBS in Boston and Cumulus in Worcester.
Kurtz said, "I am excited about the opportunity at Connoisseur Hartford and specifically 102.9 The Whale, a powerhouse station, and look forward to working with the great Connoisseur Connecticut team to further develop business and results for our advertisers."
GM Kristin Okesson said, "Our team in Hartford has created a terrific-sounding station with 102.9 The Whale and Gary's energy, business savvy, and marketing expertise is exactly what we need to continue to move this station forward. Gary is well known in the New England area for delivering results for his clients, forging strong relationships, and most importantly, Gary knows how to have fun and win. The Whale is an exciting radio station and we were looking to add someone to the team who leads in an enthusiastic, fun, but strategic way."
