BORDER MEDIA has appointed veteran broadcaster JOHN HIATT Dir./Sales for its five-station cluster in AUSTIN, TX. Most recently Hiatt has overseen the 4R Broadcasting group of stations in San Angelo, and prior to that, he had worked in the AUSTIN market for over a decade for companies including CBS/INFINITY and HIATT MARKETING GROUP.
"We are thrilled to be able to attract a broadcaster with the experience and reputation that John brings," BORDER MEDIA SVP/Market Manager BOB PROUD said. "To so substantially upgrade our DOS position speaks volumes about Border’s commitment to the AUSTIN market."
"I feel incredibly blessed to be given the opportunity to come home to AUSTIN; and getting to work for BOB PROUD just makes a good thing even better," HIATT stated. "BOB has assembled a strong team -- many of whom I already know and have worked with in the past. We’re going to have fun growing these stations and I can hardly wait to get there."
