Darren Arriens dies of Covid19

Post by BASProShop » Tue Apr 21, 2020 4:29 pm

Everyone at ALL ACCESS has been stunned to hear of the untimely passing of ENTERCOM/CHARLOTTE Dir./Operations and WLNK PD DARRIN ARRIENS (4/21) following a lengthy battle with complications stemming from a COVID-19 infection.
A 30+ year radio industry veteran, ARRIENS had joined ENTERCOM/CHARLOTTE three years ago (NET NEWS 3/3/2017).
ARRIENS had worked with current ENTERCOM/CHARLOTTE SVP/Market Manager MATT HANLON for the better part of 20 years in a number of markets. He had also programmed Country KSKS (93.7 KISS COUNTRY)/FRESNO, Hot AC WGYL (THE BREEZE 93.7)/WEST PALM BEACH, FL, PD and MD at KKMG (MAGIC FM) and sister Classic Rocker KKFM/COLORADO SPRINGS, PD at Classic Rocker KHYT/TUCSON, PD for Rocker WKLQ/GRAND RAPIDS and MD at Top 40 WJIM/LANSING among others, including PD at WRIF/DETROIT and WLZR/MILWAUKEE.
ARRIENS was also PD of WLAV/GRAND RAPIDS when the station won the MARCONI AWARD For Medium Market Station Of The Year in 2008.

Not listed, but Darren was also the PD of WIOT, Toledo, during the late 90.

Not to mention he was PD of WVIC, East Lansing (Buzz 95) from 1995-96. Sad news!

If you ask who I'm voting for, I'll tell you I'm voting for the person I'm voting for.

Pretty sure someone around here used to call him Darren Airhead (if it's the same guy).
