CBS RADIO EVP/Operations SCOTT HERMAN has announced that MICK ANSELMO has been named CBS/MINNEAPOLIS SVP/Market Mgr., beginning DECEMBER 1st.
HERMAN commented, "When it comes to MINNEAPOLIS radio leadership there is no name bigger than MICK ANSELMO. Over 23 years, culminating in his role as President & Market Manager for CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO/MINNEAPOLIS, MICK has a proven history of leadership, transforming radio stations into winners and generating terrific ratings and revenue performance along the way. MICK has successfully dealt with acquisitions and mergers, having managed stations for AM/FM, CHANCELLOR, SHAMROCK and MALRITE ... all in MINNEAPOLIS, NORTH DAKOTA and SOUTH DAKOTA. MICK's reputation for developing talent, managing brands, improving performance and operational excellence makes him the perfect choice to lead our cluster at this time.
"For the past year MICK has been COO of ADVANTAGE RENT-A-CAR, based in MINNEAPOLIS, a company with 1,100 employees in 48 markets. While ADVANTAGE has enjoyed explosive growth, MICK's passion for radio brings him to CBS.
"CBS RADIO President DAN MASON and I are extremely excited to be able to add a MINNEAPOLIS icon to our growing roster of senior management. I am thrilled to have MICK join our team in this important leadership role -- and I am also pleased that MARY NIEMEYER has agreed to take on the role of VP/Director of Sales and GSM of WCCO. MARY's tireless work ethic and loyalty to our cluster and company is unquestioned. I believe the team of MICK and MARY could be the finest combination we've ever had in this market."
