CBS RADIO has promoted longtime Sports Radio 66 WFAN/NEW YORK PD ERIC SPITZ to Dir./Programming with responsibility for talent development, scheduling, on-air presentation and production.
"ERIC has a unique skill set ideal for building a sports radio network as proven by his tremendous success at WFAN," CBS RADIO SVP/Programming CHRIS OLIVIERO said. "ERIC has been involved with the pioneering radio station since the beginning and watched the format grow from its infancy to what is now one of the most successful in the industry. His perspective is exactly what’s needed to launch a sports radio brand that can stand the test of time. And his selection for this critical position proves the value we are putting on leadership with a strong editorial track record in sports programming.
"We are also fortunate to be able to call on the expertise of MARK CHERNOFF, who is without a doubt the most successful sports radio program director of all time," OLIVIERO added. "MARK has been one of the principals helping to lay the foundation for CBS SPORTS RADIO and his continued guidance will be a huge advantage as we craft programming we are confident will be of great interest to our affiliates around the country."
