October 27, 1980- With the introduction of Dave Christianson into the 6 PM – 10 PM slot at Tacoma’s KTAC 850, the weekday lineup is reordered as follows: Ron Harris from 2 AM to 6 AM, J. J. Reagan until 10 AM, Greg Cook from 10 AM-2 PM, Sean Carter until 6 PM, when Christianson takes over, and Jaynie Dillon from 10 PM-2 AM.
Ric Hansen, KTAC, station manager, said Christiansen (formerly of KCMU, KGW, and KING-AM) was hired when another KTAC employee, formerly of KING-AM, Paul Miller, left the job in late summer. Miller since has returned to KING-AM to work weekends, Hansen said. “A montage of people” has filled the 6 PM-10 PM void since Miller’s exit, Hansen said.
Harris, morning-air personality, recently was promoted from part-time to full-time air-staff status. [Sheila Anne Feeney-Seattle Times]
