CBS RADIO EVP/Operations SCOTT HERMAN has named DAVE ROBBINS as SVP/Market Manager for CBS RADIO/ORLANDO. Said HERMAN, "DAVE is an outstanding broadcaster and DAN [CBS RADIO Pres./CEO DAN MASON] and I have been eager to find the right senior leadership role for him within our Company. We believe that ORLANDO is the right next step in his accomplished career."
"To have been a part of the amazing CBS/CHICAGO staff for the past seven years has been an incredibly powerful experience. Now, it is very exciting to return to ORLANDO and the team of extremely talented people to help take the cluster to the next level. To say I am excited is the understatement of the year!"
Added HERMAN, "As we examined our current market management we have been impressed by the job DON HOWE has done in TAMPA and with the team he has assembled, and both DAN and I agreed he could make an even bigger difference if he could dedicate his time exclusively to that market. The time DON has spent working with the ORLANDO cluster has put them in a much better position and the time is right for DAVE to step in and execute on the vision we all see for our three stations in CENTRAL FLORIDA."
ROBBINS has history in ORLANDO. While head of Programming for NATIONWIDE from 1988-95, he was involved in the flip from BJ 105 to MIX 105.1. In addition to his ORLANDO duties, ROBBINS will continue to oversee CBS RADIO’s HD Programming effort.
Back in THE WINDY CITY, SVP/Market Mgr. ROD ZIMMERMAN will assume ROBBINS’ previous duties overseeing WUSN and WCFS.
