CBS RADIO/NEW YORK SVP/Market Manager DON BOULOUKOS is retiring from the company effective JUNE 2014, after a career in broadcasting that spanned more than four decades. EVP/Operations SCOTT HERMAN will assume BOULOUKOS’ duties.
BOULOUKOS first joined CBS RADIO in 1998 following the acquisition of AMERICAN RADIO SYSTEMS INC. (ARS) where he was Co-COO. “It is never an easy decision to leave an industry you love, and a company and cluster of stations that have been such an important part of your life,” said BOULOUKOS. “But after 41 years, it is time. I’ve been very fortunate to work for a company that allows you to operate stations as if they were your own and I take great pride in what we have been able to accomplish over the years. Working with DAN (MASON) and SCOTT (HERMAN) has been an absolute pleasure. My only regret is that I am not 21 years old and starting all over again.”
“DON is a consummate broadcaster whose contributions to the radio industry have made an indelible impact on the many stations he has directly worked with, and many more who have learned from his insight and guidance,” CBS RADIO Pres./CEO DAN MASON said. “He has served as a trusted advisor and friend to the entire radio community while helping shape the medium as we know it today. All of us at CBS RADIO have been fortunate to work alongside him and wish him well as he concludes this chapter of an illustrious career. I personally want to thank DON for his service. It’s been an honor and a pleasure to work alongside him.”
“They don't come much better than DON BOULOUKOS,” HERMAN said. “I'm extremely thankful for his friendship and all his years of wisdom, guidance and stewardship of many of our great radio stations.”
