Alpha Media’s Senior Vice-President & Market Manager, Dale Schaefer, commented on the announcement, “Ben Davis has been an incredible leader for our cluster for many years as our Program Director and morning show host for WDJX. With this promotion, he will be able to expand his leadership role to all five of our stations and help each one reach their full potential. Our entire staff is thrilled about Ben’s promotion and look forward to working with him to make each station a greater success than what it has already achieved.”

I can’t wait to get working with our dynamic team and look forward to growing our reach in 2015 and beyond. I need to thank Dale Schaefer, Phil Becker, Scott Mahalick, and Bill McElveen for this amazing opportunity!”
With Ben’s promotion to Operation Manager, Alpha Media has begun an immediate search to find a high-energy, experienced CHR-Program Director and Afternoon Drive Personality. While Ben will continue to host the “Ben and Kelly Morning Show” each day on WDJX, he will turn over the day-to-day Program Director responsibilities for WDJX to this new candidate so he can focus his off-air time and energy to leading and strengthening all five of the stations in the cluster.
