Bolstered by the recent acquisition of 57 stations in 13 markets from CLEAR CHANNEL, GAP WEST BROADCASTING has hired JEFF SCHATZ to be VP/Sales.
SCHATZ has spent the previous four years as a marketing/sales consultant for ADVANTAGE SYSTEMS INC.; where he worked several of tech stations sold to GAP WEST. Before that, SCHATZ was VP/Market Manager at NEW WAVE BROADCASTING; he worked with new GAP WEST Pres. SKIP WELLER when he was Dir./Sales for TRIBUNE's cluster in DENVER (1992-2001).
"I'm putting the band back together," WELLER said. "We are thrilled to have JEFF as part of the GAP WEST management team. JEFF, VP/Programming JACK EVANS and I all competed with each other in DENVER radio; now we are thrilled to be all on the same team. JEFF's leadership skills and experience, as well as his success in developing revenue and training sales teams, will be a great asset to our company. It is a great fit for GAP West, as he already works with the majority of the managers and AEs at our stations.
