Industry veteran Kim Bryant has been named executive in charge of Cumulus’ New York radio cluster. She’ll oversee all sales and station operations.
Bryant will lead the talk giant WABC with aging, albeit still a rating draw, Don Imus, and WPLJ on the FM.
“As you would expect, we had hundreds of applicants for this position and Kim, with her passion for radio and incredible resume, was always our first choice,”COO/EVP Jon Pinch, tells All Access. “With WFME expected to close shortly, Cumulus will own and operate a significant cluster in market number 1 and Kim’s leadership will be essential for our continued success.”
Bryant joins Cumulus after more than 25 years in radio and television, most recently serving as EVP/marketing and sales for international cable channel Cinemoi.
“I believe this is one of the most exciting times in broadcasting. With all of the platforms at our reach from digital, video to social media and the important roll that radio plays in all of it,” Bryant said. “There is no place that I would rather be then with a progressive company like Cumulus and in one of the most important markets like New York City. I am thrilled to be working with the Cumulus team and one of the fastest growing radio companies in the U.S. today.”
