CUMULUS MEDIA has promoted VP/Sales ANGEL BROWN to VP/Market Manager of its four-station cluster in MOBILE, AL; moved PENSACOLA, FL VP/Market Manager HUGH MCPHERSON to VP/Market Manager of its MELBOURNE, FL cluster; and promoted VP/Sales JJ WATERS to VP/Market Manager for its PENSACOLA, FL cluster.
"When we recruited ANGEL BROWN into the company several years ago as a sales manager in ALBANY, GA, we knew she had the core talent, drive and ability to go much further in our company," SVP/Cumulus GARY PIZZATI said. "Today, we are proud to announce her appointment as VP/MM for MOBILE, ALABAMA. ANGEL single-handedly turned that market last year to a material contributor to our success.”
“What an honor to be named the VP/ MM for CUMULUS/MOBILE," BROWN said. "I have the privilege of managing four powerhouse stations alongside an exceptional team of people within an amazing organization. I couldn’t be happier.”
“HUGH MCPHERSON is a very talented manger with a proven track record for successfully developing and leading great teams," CUMULUS RVP PETE DESIMONE said. "He understands the value of people, our systems and delivering consistent results for customers.”
“HUGH took PENSACOLA to new heights under his leadership," CUMULUS SVP GARY PIZZATI said. "We look forward to the same performance in MELBOURNE. We are fortunate to have the solid bench strength to be able to promote from within.”
“Leaving PENSACOLA is bittersweet considering the staff's hard work, dedication and success," MCPHERSON said. "I am honored and excited to lead the charge in MELBOURNE and work with another very talented team."
“This was a natural move for JJ WATERS within CUMULUS," CUMULUS SVP GARY PIZZATI said. "Her 20-year tenure in PENSACOLA as a Sales Manager has been very advantageous for us. Now at the helm of our newly assembled cluster, JJ will take us to the next level. We’re proud to have her on our team.”
“I couldn’t be more thrilled for the privilege to accept this new challenge," WATERS said. "It’s an honor to be a part of CUMULUS/PENSACOLA and the amazing team we’re building.”
