Christian radio broadcast company Educational Media Foundation (EMF) has named Mandy Young EMF Radio Group Program Director. Young, who had been serving as PD and on-air personality for the company’s Air1 network, will now lead programming for both the Air1 and K-Love networks. Young has been with the company for more than a decade.
“I was privileged to speak with an extensive group of highly qualified candidates on the search for the programmer to lead K-Love,” Chief Content Officer Jim Houser said in a release. “I was on the hunt for a program director with a passion for the gospel, an excitement for the challenge, and an ear for hits, imaging and air talent — a tall task. I spoke to people all over the country, and the right choice was in our building the whole time.”
Young remarked, “I am humbled by and excited for this new role. I have loved this ministry and the people it reaches for 11 years and I look forward to leading an amazing team at K-Love and Air1.”
Additionally, Dan Arthur, co-host of Air1’s “Dan & Michelle” morning show, has been named APD/MD at the network. He will continue in his on-air role with the added programming responsibilities.
“I’ve had the pleasure of spending the last two years working alongside Dan,” Young added. “I’m excited to see the contributions Dan will bring to his new role and I am sure our audience will benefit greatly from his creativity and skillset.”
The company plans to hire an APD for K-Love to assist Young with that network.
