Clear Channel is covering all its bases on the digital front. It has hired Kevin Lockhart, formerly president of Prophet Systems, as a digital data guru. Officially, his title is senior vice president of technology development, and Lockhart reports directly to Clear Channel Radio CEO John Hogan.
Lockhart told RW Online his job is "to identify new technologies or ways to enhance current technologies to increase listenership." Clear Channel will look at ways to use technologies such as digital data services, multiple channels and surround sound as potential ways to broaden its listener base, he said.
Lockhart's job is a newly created position. Dick Wooden, formerly in charge of business development for Prophet Systems, is working with him at Clear Channel, he said.
Prophet has split the president's job between Chip Jellison and Tim Gieschen, Lockhart said. Jellison is co-president of technology and Gieschen is co-president for operations, sales and finance.
Prophet is an independent business unit of Clear Channel.
