HUBBARD RADIO has changed its executive hierarchy, as Pres./CEO BRUCE REESE transitions to a special advisor capacity, while Chairman GINNY MORRIS assumes CEO duties.
REESE first joined BONNEVILLE INTERNATIONAL in 1984 and was appointed Pres./CEO in 1996. He stayed on when 17 BONNEVILLE radio stations across four markets (WASHINGTON, D.C., CHICAGO, ST. LOUIS and CINCINNATI) were purchased by HUBBARD RADIO in 2011.
“Working with BRUCE over these last three-and-a-half years on the integration, first on the BONNEVILLE assets and subsequently those we bought from SANDUSKY and merged into a new HUBBARD RADIO, has been a great experience," MORRIS said. "BRUCE is smart and strategic and he shares many of the values that our family holds dear -- a commitment to localism, honesty and integrity. He has helped to establish a great foundation for the company and we are grateful to still have the benefit of his wise counsel.”
“Over the last two decades, I’ve had the opportunity to run two great radio companies," REESE said, "After BONNEVILLE was brought into HUBBARD RADIO, we all worked to preserve the values and spirit of both organizations while creating one corporate identity and culture. The success of the transition has exceeded my hopes, and I am grateful for the trust shown to me by GINNY and the entire HUBBARD RADIO family. Our company is performing well, and the time is right for GINNY to step into this role. I look forward to continuing to work with the HUBBARD team in an advisory capacity while eagerly looking forward to the next chapter in my life.”
