Station group owner iHeartMedia has made several announcements for its operations in West Palm Beach, Fla., and Louisville, Ky.
iHeartMedia West Palm Beach announced the immediate appointment Mark McCauley as regional senior vice president of sales, and Rad Messick as regional senior vice president of programming.
iHeartMedia Region President Brian Olson welcomed Messick and McCauley to the West Palm Beach team. “Their track record of success in sales, programming and research is exceptional,” he said.
As SVP of sales, McCauley oversees sales operations for the region. He joined the company in 1997 and has served in multiple management roles. McCauley previously served as market president for The Florida Gator Network and Florida News Network (FNN). He also launched FNN Hispana, a statewide Hispanic news network in 2008, and served as the general sales manager for the Orlando and Tampa regions.
“There’s tremendous opportunity across the region and I look forward to meeting with our marketing partners to see how we can further help grow their businesses,” said McCauley.
Rad Messick will oversee programming operations for the West Palm Beach region as senior vice president of programming. He joins the region from iHeartMedia Omaha, where he served as SVP of programming. He also served in that role for the Grand Rapids, Mich., Las Vegas, Madison, Wis., Milwaukee, Colorado Springs, Colo., and Ft. Collins, Colo., markets.
Messick said it was exciting and energizing to join the new iHeartMedia West Palm Region and local teams.
iHeartMedia Louisville announced the immediate promotion of Kevin Hughes to senior vice president of sales and of Michael Jordan to senior vice president of programming.
Both positions will oversee iHeartMedia’s Kentucky-Indiana region and will be based out of Louisville. “Their talent, desire to win and proven track records make them remarkable additions to our senior leadership team,” said Earl Jones, iHeartMedia’s Kentucky-Indiana Region president.
Hughes has been with iHeartMedia for 19 years, and he is a 30-year veteran of the radio industry.
Jordan, who has been with iHeartMedia for 13 years, said his dream had always been to work with the legendary brands he grew up with and grow within a great company.
