Ken Moultrie

Ken Moultrie is widely known in the industry for leading the programming division of America’s top radio programming companies, launching the most successful syndicated personalities on the air today, and working one-on-one with individual radio stations.

Ken grew up in radio broadcasting. At 13, Ken was hanging around KRRC-FM, a 10-watt station at Reed College in Portland, Oregon until they finally put him on the air. Ken made an aircheck that landed his first “real” paying radio job as a DJ weekend nights at the highly rated KPAM-FM (Portland’s first Top 40 FM) during his freshman year of high school. The years that followed included on-air and programming positions at many successful radio stations around the Northwest, including KFLY, KYTE, KGON, KCNR, KFAT, KDUK, KSND, KRPM, KYCW, and KMPS.

In 1994, Ken Moultrie joined Broadcast Programming in Seattle as a National Programmer and Consultant specializing in Country, Oldies and Classic Rock formats, working with hundreds of radio stations across the U.S. and Canada.

Ken was promoted to Director Of Consulting for Broadcast Programming in 1997, and elevated to Vice President Of Programming for the company in 1999. In 2001, the company sold to Jones Radio Networks and Ken continued in his role managing the successful Seattle based programming and consulting business for Jones Radio Networks until November, 2008 when he left the company to form Broadcast Partners.

In addition to consulting many radio stations and broadcast groups, Ken was involved in the development, launch, and management of several very successful syndicated radio programs including Delilah, Lia, Alan Kabel, Bill Cody’s Classic Country Weekend, and Danny Wright All-Night. Ken has also developed and managed radio projects with Lifetime Television, Marie Osmond, GAC Television, and others.

Ken became the voice for many national radio projects which include hosting the legendary Drake Chenault syndicated radio program Super Soul America, reaching an international audience with a weekly cume of over 3 million. Ken may only speak English, but the show was the #1 radio program in Yokohama, Japan.

Ken is a regular contributing writer for many industry trade publications, has spoken at numerous broadcast conventions and seminars, and served on boards and commitees including The National Association Of Broadcasters, Country Radio Broadcasters, Country Music Association, and several state broadcast organizations.

It is also rumored that Ken Moultrie helped Al Gore invent the Internet.

Mike Bettelli

Mike Bettelli has been involved with radio stations, programming and consulting since his sophomore year at the University Of Washington. While earning his B.A. in Communications he worked evenings at KUOW-FM on campus. A lifetime resident of the Northwest, he spent several years in Bellingham, WA. at International Good Music, Broadcast Programming, and then as Program Director of the highly rated KISM-FM.

In the early 80’s Mike moved to Seattle to join the legendary, full service KOMO-AM. Mike was named Program Director at KOMO-AM in 1986, and continued in that role until the early 90’s. Under Mike’s leadership, KOMO-AM won numerous Edward R. Murrow, New York Radio Festival, and The Golden Mike Awards.

In 1991 Mike joined Broadcast Programming in Seattle as a National Programming Consultant and Director of AC formats. In addition to consulting many radio stations through the years, Mike was the Program Director for several syndicated radio programs including Delilah, Dave ‘Til Dawn, The Lifetime Radio Show, Saturday Night Love Songs, and others.

Mike has been a regular contributor to the Programming To Win column for FMQB.com and his writing about radio has also appeared in numerous trade publications. He has often appeared on panels at state broadcast association meetings and at NAB, Gavin, and R&R conventions. In 1988 Mike named the Marconi Awards in a contest sponsored by The NAB.

It’s been rumored that Bettelli and Marconi also collaborated on the “spaghetti awards” an idea rejected by the NAB, but later embraced by The Sons Of Italy.

Walter Powers

Earning his B.S. degree from the University of Tulsa in 1974, Walt served as Program Director of campus station KWGS-FM. Walt was also President of the Alpha Sigma chapter of the national broadcast fraternity Alpha Epsilon Rho.

While attending college, Walt began his career in commercial broadcasting at Tulsa’s KRAV-FM, where he was first introduced to the Bonneville Easy Listening format. In the mid-70’s, Walter joined Bonneville Broadcast Consultants in New Jersey, eventually rising to VP of Operations for Bonneville.

During his 18 years at Bonneville, Walter pioneered and developed stringent programming and technical quality control systems (1977) and 24-hour music program delivery via satellite (1981).

In 1993, Walter joined Broadcast Programming in Seattle, and soon thereafter was appointed VP of Programming. Walt helped clients transition from tape to digital delivery of music programming, while managing a staff of the most talented and resourceful programmers in the radio industry. During this time, Walter continued to program and consult Easy Listening and Adult Standards radio stations.

In 1999, Jones Radio Networks appointed Walter as their Director of Client Services, specializing in helping clients merge satellite and local programming using state of the art technical platforms from Google, Broadcast Electronics and RCS, among others.

Walter denies the rumor that he wrote the big Billy Swan hit “I Can Help” although those of us who know Walt think he had something to do with it.
