The editor of Ozarks Independent has accepted the position of News Director for the radio stations in Springfield operated by Zimmer Mid West Communications.
Jason Wert will begin the new position on August 10. He will also continue as a co-host of KWTO’s long time morning show, Morning Line.
“I’m honored to have this opportunity,” Wert said. “Zimmer Communications have made a real commitment to serving the Ozarks with locally-focused news and information, which is what Ozarks Independent has been all about since our beginning. We want 93.3 FM and AM 560 KWTO to be the first choice for local broadcast news.”
The new position will not impact the operation of Ozarks Independent, as Wert will continue in his current position.
