EMMIS has tapped former SUSQUEHANNA Sr. VP/GM Group Operations DAN HALYBURTON as its NEW YORK Sr. VP/Market Mgr. He begins today and will oversee Top 40/Hip Hop WQHT (HOT 97), Urban AC WRKS (KISS-FM), and Smooth Jazz WQCD (CD101.9). He replaces BARRY MAYO who resigned earlier this year (NET NEWS 1/17), but continues as a consultant for EMMIS.
EMMIS RADIO President RICK CUMMINGS noted, "This has been our most exhaustive search in my 25 years at EMMIS, but it was worth it because we got the right person. DAN brings a rich history of outstanding performance and great management to EMMIS/NEW YORK. I am thrilled to have him running one of our most important operations."
HALYBURTON, who has been in DALLAS for the past 25 years, said, "This is the ultimate job -- three great radio stations in the greatest city in the world. I have always admired EMMIS COMMUNICATIONS, and I’m honored to follow BARRY MAYO as market manager. These are great radio people who value their employees, their customers and the communities they serve. Most importantly I am excited to work along side the EMMIS/NEW YORK staff. They are the foundation of these great stations."
