GREATER MEDIA Pres./CEO PETER SMYTH has added Chairman of the Board duties to his portfolio, effective immediately. SMYTH was appointed to the new post after the sudden passing of former Chairman of the Board, JOHN BORDES, on SEPTEMBER 25th. The other members of the Board are family members of GREATER MEDIA founder PETER BORDES.
"On behalf of the family, we are thrilled and honored to have PETER as our Chairman/CEO," PETER BORDES, JR. said. "He brings years of leadership and dedication not only to our company but to the industry, which holds him in the highest esteem. His enduring commitment to GREATER MEDIA carries on a tradition of excellence set forth by my father and upheld by my uncle."
"I am honored to be entrusted with this new responsibility," SMYTH said. "But even more important, especially in these turbulent economic times, is that the BORDES family remains firmly committed to its investment in GREATER MEDIA's radio stations and is enthusiastic about the future of the company and the industry."
