First, please join me in welcoming Garrett Searight to BSM and BNM. Garrett has been hired as our FT Brand Editor, which means he will oversee BSM and BNM’s website’s content M-F during normal business hours. He will work closely with yours truly (Jason Barrett), our nighttime editors Arky Shea and Eduardo Razo, and our entire writing teams to create content opportunities for both of our brands. Garrett joins us after a decade long stint in Lima, OH where he most recently worked as program director and afternoon host at 93.1 The Fan. He also programmed classic country station 98.5 The Legend. His first day with us is August 1st, but he’ll be training this month (July) to make sure he’s ready to hit the ground running.
Searight will be working with WOSN on football coverage this year as well-
His replacement on the afternoon talk show on the Fan is Billy Elvis, who joins co-host Jon Cook.
