Big D to Host Afternoons at KWNR, Las Vegas. Air personality Big D is named the new afternoon drive jock at iHeartMedia's country KWNR, Las Vegas "95.5 The Bull." He is taking over the daypart from the company's regional SVP of programming JoJo Turnbeaugh, who says, "Big D was a big part of 'The Bull' when he handled nights a couple of years ago. It's great to have him back home where I know he will take afternoons to a whole new level here in Las Vegas." Big D also worked in the Vegas market at iHeartMedia's CHR KPLV "93.1 The Party" as APD/MD and afternoon host. He says, "Country radio is something I've grown to love over the last five years. I've been lucky enough to learn the format from amazing programmers like Travis Moon, Bree Wagner, Gregg Swedberg, and JoJo Turnbeaugh. I'm excited to step into my first full-time gig in country radio with a stacked air staff on a massive station. I'm blessed for this opportunity and cannot wait to see where it brings me next. Horns Up!"
