WICHITA — After two decades in Brittany Center at 21st and Woodlawn, Entercom Radio is moving its Wichita office.
By early 2015, Entercom will be in the Ruffin Building at 9111 E. Douglas. That's the building that's perhaps better known as the former Pizza Hut headquarters.
Entercom is taking 12,000 square feet there.
"The Ruffing Building better suits our needs," says vice president and general manager Jackie Wise.
Entercom stations include KNSS, 1330-AM, KEYN, 103.7-FM, KDGS, 93.9-FM, KFBZ, 105.3-FM, and KFH Sports, which is on 98.7-FM and 1240-AM. All of them are moving to the Ruffin Building.
"We are very excited about moving over there," Wise says. "We think it's a great facility that's well maintained, and it's a wonderful location."
Chris Ruffin and Jon Cyphert of Ruffin Properties and Craig Ablah of Classic Real Estate handled the deal.
"We're so glad to have them," Ruffin says of Entercom.
The move likely will happen in February or March.
About Carrie Rengers
Carrie Rengers joined The Eagle's Business team in 2002 despite her inability to even balance a checkbook. Fortunately for her, and readers, her Have You Heard? blog is about business scoops and contains lots of news but almost no math.
A Michigan native, Carrie’s father was quite tragically transferred to Little Rock, Ark., in the middle of her sophomore year of high school. To make matters worse, her parents put her in a girls school. She recovered, though, and went on to enjoy being an English major at Hendrix College (the Harvard of the Ozarks, don’t you know). She worked for the weekly Arkansas Business and the statewide daily Arkansas Democrat-Gazette before moving to Wichita to be with her favorite writer and cook, husband Joe Stumpe.
