CBS Radio is moving its Seattle programming director, Mike Preston, to San Francisco where he will have the newly created title of VP/Programming for News (KCBS-AM 740) and Classic Hits (KFRC-FM 99.7). Ed Cavagnaro will continue as director of news and programming for KCBS, according to RadioandRecords.com. Additionally, Ken Kohl, who launched CBS Radio’s Free FM (KIFR 106.9), will now become vice president of news and talk programming for CBS Radio’s six-station Bay Area cluster. Kohl previously was Northern California director of news and talk programming for Clear Channel (overseeing KNEW 910, KQKE “The Quake” 960, KFBK 1530 Sacramento and KSTE 650 Sacramento) is jumping to CBS. Bay Area Radio Digest notes that Preston had previously worked as “Mark Preston” at KDON Salinas, KOKQ Monterey and KSFM Sacramento. He also was program director at KWSS in San Jose in 1986.
