CLEAR CHANNEL MEDIA AND ENTERTAINMENT/PORTLAND has promoted CHRIS "SARGE" SARGENT to OM, effective immediately. Previously, he was PD for Talk KEX-A, Talk KPOJ-A and PD/mornings for Classic Hits KFBW.
"I’ve been fortunate to have CHRIS SARGENT working alongside TOMMY AUSTIN the last three years and the luxury of having two OMs in the building, which certainly made my search a lot easier," CCM+E VP/Market Manager ROBERT DOVE said. "I know CHRIS’ leadership along with the help and guidance of SVP/Programming BRAD HARDIN will lead to continued ratings success and revenue growth for our CLEAR CHANNEL cluster in PORTLAND."
"I’m very thankful for TOMMY AUSTIN and ROBERT DOVE’s belief in me and my team over the last three years," SARGENT said. "PORTLAND is my hometown and this is an amazing opportunity to work with legendary stations and talent. We have an amazing team here and I’m looking forward to working with all of them.
