Kuhlmann out, Speed in at K rock

With the imminent departure of Content Director Leigh KuhlmannK rock 95.5 has secured the services of ‘hit92.9’  Assistant Content Director and Announcer James Speed.

‘Speedy’ goes to Geelong with over 14 years of radio experience, with on-air and senior operations roles with SCA stations in Perth, Adelaide and Newcastle and will take over K rock Content Director duties on August 14th.

Looking forward to the interstate move, James Speed shared I am very excited to be joining such a great team at K rock in Geelong, by far one of the most local radio stations in Australia, I can’t wait to get stuck into it with the team.

“It’s a great station with a lot of personality and I’ve heard nothing but good things about the hard-working team behind it.”

K rock will say goodbye to long time Content Director and Departure Lounge Co-host Leigh Kuhlmann this Friday.

The last 7 years have been the best and most fulfilling of my radio career. It has been such a privilege to help build what I believe is one of the most dynamic and creative radio stations in the country.

“I will look on from a distance at the next evolution of K rock and will remember my time as some of the best of my life…”

On the changes to the lineup, Andy Mathers, General Manager applauds his long serving K rock CD. “I want to take this opportunity to sincerely thank Leigh for his outstanding creative and leadership contribution to K rock over the past seven years; ‘Speedy’ has some big shoes to fill, literally! Kuhlmann is a huge unit! He’s a champion bloke, who will be missed by all.

“Welcome to the team Speedy, we’re all looking forward to working with you.”
