Average Joes Entertainment, label home to Colt Ford, Brantley Gilbert, Matt Stillwell, Josh Gracin and a variety of others artists, has announced the addition of radio veteran Gwen Foster. Average Joes CEO Shannon Houchins admits to staffing up for a new wave in their already industry-leading movement.
“It’s an exciting time for Average Joes,” says Houchins. “Our label is expanding our foundation in the community and within the larger musical landscape. Gwen is an excellent addition to the team as she also shares our philosophies and a similar vision for our clients, and we are thrilled to have such an innovative thinker on our team.”
Foster began her career in 1987 in San Diego at CHR KKLQ-Q106 and moved to Dallas in 1989 to work at KPLX and KLIF (news/talk). She spent five years at Phoenix’s KMLE, followed by an 11-year stint at KNIX before rejoining KMLE for another two and a half years—spanning over 19 years on the air in the Phoenix market. She also served as Music Director since 1995 and comes to Average Joes after a six-month promotions representative position at Treehouse Records earlier this year.
“There is nothing average about my excitement in joining Average Joe’s Entertainment,” says Foster. “Not only am I fired up about our diverse and unique artist roster, but I am thrilled to be working in a no-holds-barred environment.”
Foster was awarded R&R Country Music Director of the Year Awards in 2005 and 2006.
