He has led many of Clear Channel Radio's most strategic and successful markets and projects, and I am confident that he will have the same positive effect at Premiere. Our thanks go to Kraig Kitchin for his leadership of this important and successful business. We wish him all the best in his new pursuits."

According to Rahilly, "One of the best parts of my current responsibilities has been collaborating with the Premiere team. Together with everyone at this great company, we will continue to build on Premiere's leadership in providing the highest quality programming and the most innovative advertising solutions to national advertisers. I thank everyone currently and formerly associated with Premiere and know that the company will continue to be America's #1 radio network.”
