YEA! NETWORK, syndicator of KIDD KRADDICK IN THE MORNING and the weekend countdown show, THE HOLLYWOOD 5, has named GEORGE LAUGHLIN as CEO. Most recently, LAUGHLIN served as SVP/Square Division at TOWNSQUARE MEDIA, following its acquisition of GAP BROADCASTING, which he founded in 2007.
YEA! Owner KIDD KRADDICK said he "wanted someone with the vision to continue to expand YEA! NETWORK from a radio syndication company to a content delivery company. GEORGE brings the perfect blend of strength in radio and integrated communications. With GEORGE's relationships and leadership in the radio industry, coupled with his strengths in integrated communications and entrepreneurialism, we will continue to build our level of performance."
LAUGHLIN stated, "KIDD and I have a history of success together. I’ve known KIDD for most of my career and I’m really looking forward to working with KIDD and his team at YEA! NETWORK to continue to build on that success. I feel like I’m coming home."
