CBS RADIO brings DAVE MCDONALD back to PORTLAND, OR, as the new SVP/GM of CBS' six-station cluster. McDONALD held the same post from 1996-2004, before he headed north to be Market Manager for CBS RADIO/Seattle.
The 34-year radio veteran boasts over two decades of GM experience with CBS RADIO, as well as HENRY BROADCASTING, FAIRMONT COMMUNICATIONS, GOLDEN WEST BROADCASTING and KING BROADCASTING.
"There is not a person better suited for the job in PORTLAND than DAVE MCDONALD," stated SVP/Market Manager LISA DECKER. "He is intimately familiar with the market, its competitive landscape, as well as the staff and client base. DAVE’s leadership skills combined with that knowledge make this a home run for the Portland cluster and our company as a whole."
"While I’ve grown very fond of living and working in SEATTLE, I’m excited about getting back to PORTLAND," MCDONALD said. "We have some incredible stations, highly qualified people and plentiful opportunities for success."
