Entercom Charlotte has tapped Darrin Arriens as the cluster’s newly created director of operations position, overseeing WBT(AM/FM), WFNZ(AM/FM) and WLNK(FM) across programming, syndication and promotions.
Arriens will lead the programming across all Entercom Charlotte stations. He will also oversee all components of the cluster’s day-to-day programming. Additionally, Arriens will manage the syndication efforts for the “Bob and Sheri Network” program and will report to Entercom Charlotte VP/Marketing Manager Matt Hanlon.
The new role is part of Entercom Charlotte’s leadership and organizational restructuring since its acquisition in early January, complementing Entercom’s existing clusters in Greensboro, N.C., and Greenville, S.C.
Arriens joins Entercom with over 25 years of radio experience across formats at ABC Radio, Citadel Broadcasting and Cumulus Media, among others. Previously, Arriens served as a regional director of operations for Citadel Broadcasting, overseeing 55 stations in the Midwest.
