Returning to radio from his most recent role as ALSAC/St. Jude Children's Research Hospital's senior liaison for radio development, Travis Moon is named director of country operations for iHeartMedia's San Antonio-Austin region. According to iHeartMedia executive vice president of programming central division Tony Coles, "Our goal is to leverage these powerful and legendary brands to better serve our listeners, our clients, and the community. Travis Moon has the vision, the experience, and the leadership skills necessary to maximize the potential of these iHeart country stations, while maintaining the strengths of their unique identities." Moon states, "St. Jude is country music's charity of choice and one of my strongest passions. I was honored that they asked me to join their talented radio team. I helped them serve radio station partners across the country. Everybody understands that it is our listeners, country fans, who keep that place going through thick and thin. There really is no other place like St. Jude and I will always be involved." Moon previously programmed iHeartMedia San Antonio country outlets KAJA "KJ-97" and KRPT (2009 – 2014); Cincinnati's WUBE "B-105.1" and WYGY "The Wolf" (2007 -2009); and he spent 11 years with iHeartMedia Minneapolis as assistant program director/music director of country-formatted KEEY "K-102." Starting in two weeks (2/22), he will oversee aforementioned KAJA and KRPT, as well as the company's Austin country properties – KASE and KVET-FM. Among persons 6+ in Nielsen Audio's "Holiday" 2015 PPM report for San Antonio, "KJ-97 was down for the third straight time (7.4 – 6.1 – 5.9 – 5.5, #5), while classic country KRPT "The Bull" – just as it did in December 2015 – finishes with a .6 (#24). In Austin, KVET-FM is off in back-to-back sweeps (5.9 – 5.4 – 4.4, #6), while KASE (#12) has not had an increase in the past five survey periods (6.0 – 6.0 – 5.4 – 5.0 – 4.4 – 3.7, 6+).
