MERLIN MEDIA has added market vet MAIRE MASON as Dir./Sales for WRXP (101.9 FM)/NEW YORK. Most recently, MASON served as the VP/Dir./Sales for UNIVISION RADIO/NEW YORK (NET NEWS 4/27/2010). She also spent nearly two decades managing CBS RADIO/NEW YORK's Classic Hits WCBS, then Rock, now Top 40 WXRK (92.3 NOW) and AC WNEW (FRESH 102.7).
"Given her strong experience and deep relationships in the NEW YORK area, we look forward to MAIRE joining the team and making an immediate impact," said EVP/Revenue GREG JANOFF. "MAIRE has great insights into this industry, especially when it comes to sales, and she will be hugely valuable to us as we focus on the sustained, long-term growth of our properties."
"Despite its early stages, MERLIN MEDIA has already secured an impressive foundation of top-notch executives," said MASON. "I've been in this industry for over 20 years and with this company I feel a shared passion and commitment to succeed that's truly unique. I couldn't be more excited for this new adventure."
MERLIN has taken over WRXP/NEW YORK from EMMIS under an LMA before closing on the purchase of the station; it is presently stunting with a Hot AC format.
