More changes at KIRO/KTTH. Princely Program Director Rod Arquette has resigned and will leave at the end of March. We’ve been wondering when a head might roll after the dive after KIRO’s ill-fated flip to FM, but we’re not really sure if this be one of them. Photo: Seattle Times.
Arquette's been in town since 2007, and had an inauspicious beginning, to say the least. Arquette was at one time, Vice President of Bonneville's Programming and Operations. Long-lived with Bonneville, we're not sure if Arquette will stay with the company.
