One of Austin’s top-rated radio stations has tweaked its lineup.

Bob Pickett, a station veteran, has shifted to afternoon drive on 98.1 KVET-FM. He can now be heard weekdays from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Taking Pickett’s 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. midday spot is a newcomer, Bree Wagner.

Wagner currently works at sister station KAJA-FM in San Antonio and will split her time between the two cities, station owner iHeartMedia said.

“Bree is a rock star air talent and programmer,” said Travis Moon, director of country operations for iHeartMedia’s Central Texas region. “Her music passion, knowledge and relationships will only strengthen the brands in Austin and we are excited to expand her role with iHeartMedia.”

In addition to her new on-air gig, Wagner will also serve as music director and assistant program director for KVET-FM, as well as sister station KASE 101.

“I am so excited to be a part of the legendary 98.1 KVET and KASE 101 in Austin,” Wagner said. “Austin is such a great city and it’s a dream come true to be a part of it every day.”
