New Management Structure At KPRI/San Diego
August 17, 2006 at 8:22 AM (PT)
COMPASS RADIO GROUP AAA KPRI/SAN DIEGO President ROBERT HUGHES becomes Chairman/CEO, EVP/CFO JONATHAN SCHWARTZ rises to President/COO, VP/Programming & Marketing BOB BURCH is named VP/Station Manager.
HUGHES said, "In a small highly mobile organization like this, traditionally titles have not been that important. We all do whatever we’re uniquely qualified to do to make the enterprise work. However, as we observe our tenth anniversary with 102.1 KPRI, we think it’s an ideal time to recognize some outstanding accomplishments and to create some new opportunities."
HUGHES continues, "Our board of directors has unanimously voted that JONATHAN SCHWARTZ shall assume the presidency of our company for a couple of reasons. First, we are in a new era of the radio business, characterized by slower growth and the need to control costs and maximize revenues. Our needs in these areas exactly match the skill set that JONATHAN has refined over the last decade. There is no better planner or forecaster in the industry."
