"Big Benny" To Program KABG-FM
American General Media has named "Big Benny" Martinez PD for KABG-FM/Classic Hits Big 98.5. Martinez has spent the majority of his career in the Albuquerque market, most recently as morning show producer and co-host at KIOT. Prior to that, Martinez also spent time at KSYU where he also performed morning show duties. This returns Martinez to AGM, where he previously served as morning show host for rhythmic oldies KMMG.
"We're extremely excited to welcome Benny back to AGM. He is a wildly enthusiastic and talented collaborator, with a great passion for radio. Our employees are our competitive advantage, and the addition of Benny only strengthens that," said Suzy Rufail, AGM Market Manager-Albuquerque/Santa Fe.
"I am VERY excited to be a part of the BIG 98.5 family," said Martinez. "I'm also excited to work with the great staff assembled here. I look forward to continuing the great things that have been done with BIG 98.5, and I hope to add what I can to make a great radio station even greater. Together as a team, I know that we can accomplish that," Martinez added.
