CLEAR CHANNEL MEDIA + ENTERTAINMENT has appointed TIM "ROMEO" HERBSTER, VP/Special Programming Projects. HERBSTER, the host of the nationally syndicated show "SATURDAY Night Online," will continue to host the show in conjunction with his new position.
HERBSTER will manage large-scale national projects, working closely with EVP/National Programming Platforms DARREN DAVIS on advertiser integration programs. He will also develop on-air and digital music programming and content. He will leave his previous posts as PD for Top 40 WIOQ(Q102)/PHILADELPHIA and Online PD for the entire PHILADELPHIA cluster.
"It’s an incredibly exciting time at CLEAR CHANNEL MEDIA + ENTERTAINMENT and to program at the national level, working side-by-side with TOM POLEMAN and DARREN DAVIS, is a dream come true," said HERBSTER. "I’m looking forward to developing top-tier on-air and digital content and executing unique national advertising programs and live events. I’m also excited to continue my weekly syndicated show ‘SATURDAY Night Online’ at its new home in NEW YORK from the world-famous Z100 studios."
"TIM's background and skill set perfectly align with CLEAR CHANNEL's position as a fully integrated media company," CCM+E Pres./National Programming Platforms TOM POLEMAN said. "His experience programming some of the country's most successful radio stations, background in digital radio and keen sense for creating advertiser-focused solutions make him a perfect fit for this role. Bringing him onto the National Programming Platforms team makes perfect sense and is yet another great differentiator for CLEAR CHANNEL MEDIA AND ENTERTAINMENT."
CCM+E will begin a nationwide search for the next Q102 PD, who will also oversee CLEAR CHANNEL/PHILADELPHIa’s digital team.
