RADIO ONE has named CHRISTOPHER WEGMANN as VP/GM and ALAN LEINWAND as Dir./Sales for their five-station cluster in WASHINGTON, D.C.
WEGMANN, a broadcasting veteran of 30+ years, joined RADIO ONE in MARCH 2009 as VP/GM of ST. LOUIS and RVP/DALLAS. He continues to hold these positions.
"I am excited to have CHRIS assume the position of GM of our five-station cluster in D.C.," said Pres. BARRY MAYO. "His ability to increase revenue and market share is amply evident in the results that our ST. LOUIS and DALLAS markets have posted in 2009 and 2010, and I anticipate the same outcome in D.C."
"I am fortunate that after only a short time with RADIO ONE, I have been given the opportunity to oversee the Company's heritage market," said WEGMANN. "I look forward to working with the dedicated staff of the D.C. market to achieve our collective goals of increased ratings, revenue and market share."
LEINWAND was most recently GSM for CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 WHTZ and Urban WWPR/NEW YORK, and will be returning to D.C. where he had an extensive track record of success in management and sales with CBS RADIO.
