Consulting firm MCVAY/COOK & ASSOCIATES has named PHIL HUNT President, taking over the position previously held by CHARLIE COOK. With over 30 years of broadcasting experience, HUNT previously was a CLEAR CHANNEL SVP and SVP at RUSTY WALKER PROGRAMMING.
Some of the stations that HUNT has worked with are CBS RADIO Country WUSN/CHICAGO, CLEAR CHANNEL Country WKKT/CHARLOTTE, CLEAR CHANNEL Country WSSL/GREENVILLE, CLEAR CHANNEL Country KSSN/LITTLE ROCK, SUMMIT MEDIA Country WKHK/RICHMOND and many more stations of varying formats.
“My expertise and my passion are start-ups and turnarounds," HUNT said. "I read situations quickly; develop understandable and easy to implement strategies and then guide the local team toward reaching our goals. With CLEAR CHANNEL, and with RUSTY, regardless of the market size, our focus was always on gaining audience share. The same holds true on the digital side with my recent local and national responsibilities.
"This is the beginning of a great partnership," he continued. "Our combined resources will give our present clients unmatched experience and perspective with the programming challenges of 2014.”
“As I leave the consultancy, DORIS MCVAY and I are excited to be able to add PHIL to MCVAY/COOK," COOK said. "He is a respected programmer who will continue the success the company has enjoyed since" the mid-'80s with MIKE MCVAY’s vision of making stations winners. PHIL is cut from the same mold and we know that our clients are going to be thrilled with this move.
