Changes at Cumulus Beaumont


The pandemic has changed a lot globally and nationally and the world of radio broadcasting continues to change as well.  After broadcasting & working remotely for 19 months, Cumulus Media Beaumont has eliminated their real estate footprint in Beaumont, TX and has relocated and merged the studios, office and staff with Cumulus Media in Lake Charles, Louisiana.  

Effective Monday, January 24th, KTCX, KAYD and KQXY will now operate and broadcast from Lake Charles, LA which will now require Beaumont employees to relocate to Lake Charles or commute 130 miles daily.   

In wake of the merge, Kelly Mac has resigned as PD for KTCX to pursue other opportunities.  Mac has served as the Program Director a d Midday Show Host for the last 3 years and says; “it’s been an honor to be a part of the very talented, unique, and hardworking Cumulus Beaumont team.  I’m extremely proud and pleased with the work we’ve done collectively to enhance the overall branding, ratings, and revenue of KTCX online, on air, and in the community.  Serving on this team & the community has been rewarding and very fulfilling & I’ll forever be thankful for the experience and opportunity.”  A special thanks to Kenny Smoov for his solid leadership, guidance & coaching.

Mac’s career includes 20+ years of branding, on air, digital and programming experience in various markets including Greenville, SC, Cleveland, Ohio & Philadelphia to name a few.  Feel free to reach out to Mac at [email protected] for potential voice tracking (or VO) services, On Air or PD opportunities.
