iHeartMedia named Jordan Fasbender executive vice president, general counsel and secretary, a year and a half after she joined the company. She had been deputy general counsel.
She succeeds Paul McNicol, who will retire at the end of next year and meantime will remain as EVP and help with the transition.
She will oversee legal functions for iHeartMedia’s divisions and multiplatform assets, including its 860 radio stations, iHeart Podcast, the iHeartRadio App and other digital assets and the company’s “tentpole” live events like the iHeartRadio Music Festival.
Also she will continue to oversee government affairs, business affairs, compliance, regulatory and governance functions, and be responsible for operations and transactions, securities, intellectual property, litigation and privacy.
Fasbender came to the company in 2019 from Twenty-First Century Fox where she held several leadership legal positions. She was a lead team member on The Walt Disney Company acquisition of the company and the spinoff of Fox Corp. Before that she worked at Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP.
She will report to Chairman/CEO Bob Pittman and President/COO/CFO Rich Bressler.
