New General Manager Named at WGTS
Story by Grace Virtue
Kevin Krueger, WGTS 91.9 FM’s new general manager, comes to the station with more than 30 years of Christian radio experience.
Late last week, the board of Washington Adventist University’s WGTS 91.9 FM named Kevin Krueger, a Christian radio veteran, as their new vice president and general manager. Krueger comes to the Takoma Park, Md., station from Washington state where he served as general manager for KGTS 91.3 and Positive Life Radio Network (KGTS/PLR ) at Walla Walla University.
“It’s an honor to be invited to guide the team at an industry-leading station and ministry. KGTS/PLR and WGTS have a long, rich ‘sister station’ history that I plan to continue. I anticipate many wonderful opportunities to serve the people in our nation’s capital just as we have served those in the Inland Northwest. Whatever the scale or location, it really boils down to service—one person serving another,” says Krueger.
Krueger’s appointment comes after John Konrad, longtime WGTS general manger, died unexpectedly in January. Douglas Walker currently serves as interim general manager.
Krueger began working as a student announcer at Walla Walla University’s radio station in 1982. After graduating from there in 1987 with a degree in communications, he became program director and general manager a year later. Under his leadership, the station grew from a single local station into a regional Christian radio network with 120,000 listeners. Stations in the Positive Life Radio network are based in 15 cities in Washington, Oregon and Idaho.
“I’m humbled by what lies ahead. The opportunities to serve others and share Christ are huge. I feel fortunate to be joining a team of professionals and student interns that know their craft,” he says.
WGTS, which was founded in 1957, serves the Washington, D.C., area, by broadcasting contemporary Christian music to more than 600,000 listeners. It ranks among the top 10 in the Washington, D.C., market.
