GREENSTONE MEDIA taps WELESKIE BOURKE and SHARON FARRELL as OMs for NEW YORK and LOS ANGELES, respectively. BOURKE spent the last 11 years with WOR RADIO in NEW YORK, where she started as a sales assistant and was promoted to Program Coordinator; she also produced "The JOAN HAMBURG Show." FARRELL, a documentary filmmaker, was previously a producer at KGO-A/SAN FRANCISCO and has been worked in radio and TV in ALASKA and as manager of a SAN FRANCISCO-area community TV station.
"WELESKIE and SHARON are both incredibly creative and organized with an absolute passion for Talk radio," says GREENSTONE Dir./Programming HEATHER COHEN. "During such a rapid growth phase, it feels great to have them managing the facilities and setting such a positive tone for GREENSTONE's talent and affiliates."
BOURKE says, "GREENSTONE is the perfect fit for me. It's an opportunity to break new ground and do something of value for women of all ages and all lifestyles."
FARRELL comments, "The appeal of GREENSTONE for me is being part of a team of very talented people who are telling real stories and creating a sense of community based on the premise that we are all more alike than we are different."
