Tommy Austin To Segue To CC/Portland, OR
September 8, 2008 at 10:40 AM (PT)
ALL ACCESS has learned that CLEAR CHANNEL/ST. LOUIS OM TOMMY AUSTIN has accepted a transfer to CLEAR CHANNEL/PORTLAND, OR.
He will be the Operations Manager for the CC/PORTLAND cluster, which consists of AC KKCW, Talk KEX-A, Top 40 KKRZ, Talk KPOJ-A and Classic Hits KQOL -- plus he will oversee the programming of KKCW.
"TOMMY was the obvious choice for this cluster," VP/Market Manager ROBERT DOVE told ALL ACCESS. "He worked with us for four to five years in the '90s, so he already has heritage in this market. When this opportunity presented itself, he was a natural fit."
AUSTIN replaces TONY COLES, who became OM at CLEAR CHANNEL/CHICAGO (NET NEWS 8/12).
