CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO President & CEO JOHN HOGAN has laid out the finishing touches on a management restructuring to adapt to the changing market place, in a memo to the entire management team:
"Today, I'm privileged to tell you that CHARLIE RAHILLY, SUSAN KARIS and TOM SCHURR will step into three of these new positions: as Executive Vice Presidents of Operations. Together, they will share operational oversight of our stations -- each managing a region of the country: Charlie in the central region; SUSAN in the west; and TOM in the east. The attached map shows how each of these regions is defined.
In addition, CHARLIE will be representing our stations in national sales opportunities, and will be responsible for developmental sales, sales systems, and our traffic initiatives. TOM and SUSAN bring to their new Executive Vice President roles an impressive record of leadership, performance and passion.
These EVP of Operations positions complement our Executive Vice President team of TOM OWENS, EVAN HARRISON, JEFF LITTLEJOHN, STU OLDS, JERRY KERSTING and KIMBERLY CUTCHALL. Collectively they are my senior management team.
As we embark on this next transformation, please join me in first congratulating SUSAN, TOM, and CHARLIE on their new roles and responsibilities. I thank you in advance for giving them your support.
And on a personal note, I feel enormously fortunate to be working with the outstanding people at this company. This is a time of tremendous opportunity. The new approach we're rolling out will enable all of us to do the best work of our careers, and I eagerly look forward to that future with you."
