Entercom Kansas City has announced the promotion of Wes Poe to the position of Program Director for WDAF 106.5 The Wolf. Poe came to WDAF in January 2009, where he has been serving as Assistant PD, Music Director and Mid-Day host. His career also includes time at KTOM/Monterey, CA; KSON/San Diego, CA; and KMLE and KSLX/Phoenix. “I was thrilled to come home to KC a year-and-a-half ago w hen I was hired to be the Assistant Program Director/Music Director for The WOLF,” Poe says. “Now I am very excited to have the opportunity to
program a legendary station, it’s like having your cake and eating it too.”

After a narrow second place finish last week, Darius Rucker’s “Come Back Song” enters the No. 1 position with a gain of 116 spins. Kenny Chesney’s “The Boys Of Fall” slips back to No. 2, despite a small spin gain. Songs in the Top 10 are experiencing something they haven’t had in some time—movement. Taylor Swift’s “Mine” gets a 169 spin boost to take the No. 3 spot, followed by Sugarland’s “Stuck Like Glue,” which moves No. 6-4. Filling out the top 5 is The Band Perry’s “If I Die Young,” which makes a big jump after two weeks at No. 8.

The brigade of new superstar singles seems endless. Last week’s big debut was Keith Urban’s “Put You In A Song,” which shoots up to No. 33. A couple paces behind at No. 33 is Blake Shelton’s “Who Are You When I’m Not Looking,” in only its third week charting. Topping things off, three superstar artists made big debuts with zero prior reports. Toby Keith’s “Bullets In The Gun” leads the charge, landing at No. 59 with a big gain of 429 spins. Tim McGraw’s “Felt Good On My Lips” is next in line at No. 65, and Lady Antebellum’s “Hello World” is right behind at No. 68.

Newer male artists are also feeling the love right now. David Adam Byrnes’ debut single “Sweet Distraction” is up to No. 28, followed closely by Chris Young’s “Voices” at No. 29. Frankie Ballard’s “Tell Me You Get Lonely” is still gaining spins at No. 41. Headed toward the Top 40 are Jaron & TLRTL’s “That’s Beautiful To Me” at No. 51 and Walker Hayes’ “Pants” at No. 56. Brett Eldredge’s “Raymond” might catch them soon, as it packs on 140 spins and moves quickly to No. 66. Other new male artists climbing the chart include MCA’s Josh Kelley (“Georgia Clay,” No. 64), Bigger Picture’s Craig Campbell (“Family Man,” No. 73), and Arista/Sea Gayle’s red hot Jerrod Niemann (“What Do You Want,” No. 76).
