New student executives will take over the reins this semester at Kansas University student-run radio station, 90.7 FM, KJHK.

Brent Stevens, Maize, a senior studying strategic communications, is moving up from public relations director to station manager. He has been a station executive member since the fall. Stevens established KJ Play, a music review section in the student daily newspaper, The University Daily Kansan. He also managed recruiting efforts.

Carlos Centero, a senior from Caracas, Venezuela, will replace Stevens under a new title, communications director.
