Born in Boston, Massachusetts and raised in West Palm Beach, Florida, Ross Mahoney is now a Las Vegas resident and has taken over the roll of Program Director and PM drive host on KXTE, X107.5.
He broke into radio in early 1996 when he snagged an internship at alternative rock station WPBZ 103.1 The Buzz in West Palm Beach. Ross worked his way up the ladder from intern…to board op…to weekend DJ…to full time overnight DJ…to night DJ…and eventually became the afternoon DJ and Music Director/Assistant Program Director. One of his main responsibilities was to book the annual concert known as The Buzz Bake Sale.
In 2012, Ross was hired to program alternative radio station WRMR Modern Rock 98.7 in Wilmington, North Carolina. Now he has landed here in Las Vegas with 20 years experience in the Alternative format.
He has great relationships with artists and others in the industry. Every year, he makes the trip to South by Southwest to scout the up and coming bands and usually makes it to Lollapalooza in Chicago during the summer.
Single with no children, Ross loves sports and supports all the Boston sports teams, including the Patriots, Red Sox, Celtics and Bruins. Texas Hold ‘Em is a huge hobby of his, but most weekends, Ross likes to relax and binge watch some quality television. His favorite bands are Rage Against the Machine, AWOLNATION, Cage the Elephant, Tool, Sublime and Foo Fighters…among many others.
