EMMIS/INDIANAPOLIS SVP/Market Manager CHARLIE MORGAN has upped cluster OM and Country WLHK (HANK-FM) PD BOB RICHARDS to VP/Programming.
Concurrently, MORGAN announced the elevation of HANK MD/midday personality FRITZ MOSER to PD.
“It has been my privilege to work side-by-side with BOB for more than two decades and without fail, I learn from his thinking and leadership and admire his character and professionalism,” said MORGAN. “Since his arrival here at EMMIS more than four years ago, the ratings success of all four properties has grown and the quality of our content is unmatched in our marketplace.”
Speaking of MOSER, MORGAN added, “FRITZ has built a career in radio programming that is filled with successes and I am grateful that his path led him to EMMIS four years ago. He has played many roles here at EMMIS in those four years, most recently as MD for HANK. He has built strong relationships with the NASHVILLE music community and been a great partner to BOB and the HANK team, so I am looking forward to his enhanced leadership role and the results that will produce for us.”
In addition to the appointments of RICHARDS and MOSER, MORGAN named cluster Dir./Sales TRACEY BEAN VP/Sales. “Like FRITZ and BOB I have known and worked with TRACEY for portions of the past two decades and am a huge fan of her passion, creativity, strategic thinking, and caring for the development of her teams,” said MORGAN. “It is no secret that, just as we have experienced in ratings, in TRACEY’s tenure as Dir./Sales the EMMIS cluster has grown from being the third-highest-billing cluster to a dominant #1 biller.”
