iHEART PROMOTES 3 PROGRAMMING EXECS

Three of iHeartMedia’s senior programming executives— Jeff Hurley, Tony Travatto and Angela Watson Charles—have been named Division Executive Vice Presidents of Programming.

They will join current Executive Vice Presidents of Programming Andrew Jeffries, Thea Mitchem, Maynard and Gene Romano in partnering with the company’s Division Presidents, collaborating with each Division to provide national programming assets, services and resources. They will report to Brad Hardin, Chief Operating Officer of the iHeartMedia National Programming Group.

Travatto, Hurley and Watson Charles will work with Division Presidents Shosh Abromovich, Nick Gnau and Dan Lankford and the Community Division, which includes markets that focus on the shared needs of one community and one trading area for most businesses and advertisers and will also group markets into areas which are geographically close and culturally similar.

Mitchem and Jeffries will work with Kevin LeGrett and Scott Hopeck and the Region Division, which is comprised of the company’s largest markets.

Romano and Maynard will work with Division Presidents Tom McConnell, Tony Coles and Linda Byrd and the Metro Division, which houses large markets that are not regional hubs.

“We’re excited to add Angela, Jeff and Tony to our already extremely talented Executive Vice President of Programming team,” said iHeartMedia Chief Programming Officer Tom Poleman. “They each have deep experience building great local brands with a blend of math and magic, and they’ll provide excellent leadership to our programmers in our Community Division markets.”

Hurley has been Regional Senior Vice President of Programming for iHeartMedia’s Allentown/Harrisburg, Pa., Region since 2013; Travatto was SVP of Programming for iHeartMedia Detroit; and Watson Charles was SVP of Programming for iHeartMedia New Orleans’ eight stations.
