EMMIS' NEW YORK cluster ups AAA WRXP (101.9 RXP) GSM ANDREA BARONE to GSM of both WRXP and sister Top 40/Rhythmic WQHT (HOT 97). BARONE has been with the stations for over six years in various positions, including NSM for the cluster, LSM of WRXP predecessor Smooth Jazz WQCD, LSM of HOT 97, and GSM at WQCD before its flip to Rock.
"ANDREA's elevation aligns our internal structure optimally to provide our customers with an elite level of service, and also ensures that we are poised to move new innovations faster to the market," said Director of Sales HARRY CLARK. "ANDREA's command of the NEW YORK marketplace and experience can be compared to none, and her passion for winning is exactly the right spirit to take HOT 97 and RXP to new heights…she is smart, creative, resourceful, and has relentless passion for achieving results for our customers & for the people she works with."
BARONE added, "I am thrilled and honored to be given the opportunity to assume the dual General Sales Manager role for both our innovative new brand 101.9 RXP and for what is one of the country's most prestigious radio brands in HOT 97. Particularly now, during more challenging economic times, we’ll be able to use the synergy between these two cutting edge and innovative brands to create limitless opportunities for our client community. I am looking forward to helping build the new foundation of our future."
