ALISON HARRIS has been tapped to fill the vacant Sales Mgr. role at ENTERCOM News-Talk WRKO-A. A 22-year media sales veteran, HARRIS joins from her present position as VP/Sales for CLEAR CHANNEL OUTDOOR/WASHINGTON, D.C.-BALTIMORE. Prior to that, she was Dir./Eastern Division Station Group for RADIO DISNEY, also serving as that company’s station manager in BOSTON.
“Like every Talk radio station in AMERICA, WRKO has been evolving with the changing media habits and demographic shifts in our society,” said ENTERCOM/BOSTON VP/Market Manager PHIL ZACHARY. “We did not want to fill this important position until our course was set for the future and we found the perfect candidate. I’m thrilled we’re now at that point and that ALISON was available to us.”
The station will announce a revised program lineup later this month.
HARRIS says she’s thrilled to return to BOSTON radio. “WRKO is a BOSTON icon with a long and rich history, and I am excited and honored to help lead this incredibly talented team. It’s a great time to be joining ENTERCOM, and I look forward to forging lasting relationships with our current and future advertisers, allowing them to truly benefit from all that WRKO has to offer.”
HARRIS begins her new position on MONDAY, JUNE 22nd.
