CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO/HOUSTON has appointed BOB MERRIL to be General Sales Manager for Talk KTRH-A and JEFF ROVINSKY to be General Sales Manager for Sports/Talk KMBE-A and News/Talk KPRC-A, effective immediately. Previously, MERRIL was GSM for two sister AMs, while ROVINSKY formerly was LSM for CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO/CHARLOTTE.
"BOB and I have worked together for the last seven years building a solid AM team," CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO/HOUSTON Dir./Sales BO BROWN. "His sports marketing background and never quit attitude have been a key factor in our success."
"When JEFF was offered the local sales manager position in CHARLOTTE a year ago we lost a very talented media executive who excelled in relationship building and direct sales," BROWN said. "Bringing him back as a GSM for KBME/KPRC is an opportunity we never expected. He is a perfect fit."
