Gavin Dahl joined KRCL in Salt Lake City as GM and executive director.
Dahl succeeds Tristin Tabish, manager since 2017, who left in February. The station didn’t appoint an interim GM during the transition.
“Gavin is well-respected in the radio world and he’s a great fit to lead KRCL into its next phase as an essential hub for community connection and engagement in Utah and beyond,” Board President Ian Percy said in the news release.
Dahl most recently worked as news director and Morning Edition host for KVNF in Paonia, Colo. He also co-hosted the weekly music program Room to Groove.
Dahl previously managed community radio station KDNK in Glenwood Springs, Colo., where he signed on in 2016 as news director. He’s also worked on nationally distributed radio programs Alternative Radio with David Barsamian and Nonprofit Radio with Tony Martignetti.
“I feel so lucky to have this opportunity to join this excellent team and bring my family to Salt Lake City,” said Dahl in the release. “Friends and colleagues around the country keep telling me they already listen to KRCL, and we’re really impressed with the staff and volunteers. I’m ready to get to work.”
