Nothing official so far and no one is commenting, but ALL ACCESS has confirmed that iHEARTMEDIA/CHATTANOOGA Market President JARED STEHNEY and Sales Mgr. JOHN BOUWHUIS both exited the company on TUESDAY (3/15). STEHNEY had been leading the cluster since 2009, joining from then-CLEAR CHANNEL/AUGUSTA, GA (NET NEWS 9/9/2009).
Said to be succeeding STEHNEY is BECKY SWEENEY, who joins from a similar role at the iHEARTMEDIA/MONTGOMERY, AL group. The four-station CHATTANOOGA cluster includes Country WUSY, Rock WRXR, Adult Hits WLND and Top 40 WKXJ. No information on who will assume sales leadership in CHATTANOOGA; back in MONTGOMERY, JACKIE TOYE is the new Market President, joining from iHeartMedia/TUSCALOOSA, where she served as SVPS.
