Bonneville International made changes to its senior management and organizational structure to address an impending vacancy in executive management created by a retirement coming at the end of this year.
Bonneville owns and operates 30 radio stations and an NBC-affiliate television station in seven markets.
EVP/COO Bob Johnson will add Salt Lake Market manager to his duties as of Jan. 1, 2009, coinciding with the retirement of Bruce Christensen, senior vice president/Salt Lake market manager/president KSL 5 Television. As COO, Johnson will retain overall responsibility for Bonneville’s operations.
Christensen will continue to oversee the Salt Lake City market over the next 10 months.
Additionally, and effective immediately, Drew Horowitz becomes EVP Bonneville Radio, with oversight of all Bonneville operations in the company’s other six markets, exclusive of Salt Lake City. This includes two markets — Washington and Cincinnati — that have reported to Johnson.
Washington Market Manager Joel Oxley will add oversight of the St. Louis market to his responsibilities as senior regional vice president.
