Joel Weiss Joins Cumulus Kansas City as Assistant Program Director and Music Director of X105.1 and 95-7 The Vibe


announces that it has appointed Joel Weiss as and of Alternative station KCJK-FM/X105.1 and CHR station KCHZ-FM/95-7 The Vibe. Weiss, previously of WBOS-Boston, has 20 years of multi-market experience, including on-air, music strategy, consulting, programming, and research analysis. He will also serve as night host on KCJK-FM/X105.1 weeknights from 8pm–Midnight, following The Afentra Show.

Mike O’Reilly, Program Director, KCJK-FM and KCHZ-FM, said: “The timing of being able to integrate Joel into our X and Vibe brands is truly remarkable. It’s not every day you find such a creative, talented programming vet with Joel’s unique skill set and unanimous favor in the industry.”

Weiss said: “From my first conversations with Mike McVay and Troy Hanson, through my visit to KC, this felt like a unique opportunity to work with amazing people. I’m so psyched to join the Cumulus family… and also to watch Patrick Mahomes play football every week this fall!” 

Donna Baker, Regional Vice President, Cumulus Midwest Region, added: “The talented programming teams led by Mike O’Reilly have grown both of these important brands exponentially in Kansas City. Joel’s experience as a strategist with a proven record of winning is exactly the partner these teams can count on to further growth for the long-term.”
