William H. West, who resigned last week as Director of Operations of KMOX, has become General Manager of station KSD. The station is undergoing a period of expansion and reorganization and Mr. West is in charge of all operations.
Mr. West was appointed Director of KMOX last year by Nelson Darragh, president of the Voice of St. Louis and he has been with the station since it was first organized in 1925. He came to St. Louis from Springfield and is one of the best examples of youth at the helm of radio.
He was associated with Colin B. Kennedy in radio work and then came to St. Louis as Chief Operator.
Mr. West was influential in the obtaining of 50,000 watt power for KMOX and actively engaged in the selection of equipment.
