Station group owner Greater Media says Rob Williams is leaving his position as vice president and market manager of the company’s Boston radio properties. His last day will be Friday, Aug. 21. He will be replaced by Mary Menna.
Williams, who has been commuting from Connecticut to Boston since he joined the company in 2012, has accepted another opportunity closer to his home.
“We are grateful for the many contributions Rob has made over the past several years in Boston and wish him the best,” said Greater Media Chairman and CEO Peter Smyth.
Smyth added, “Mary has done an outstanding job as general manager of Magic 106.7 [WMJX] over the past year. “We look forward to her taking our entire Boston cluster to the next level and beyond.”
Beginning Aug. 24, Menna will oversee WMJX, WBOS(FM), WROR(FM), WKLB(FM) and WBQT(FM) in Boston.
She began her radio career straight out of Boston College at WBCN(FM), and she went on to work at WBZ(AM), WBOS(FM), WXKS(FM) and WJMN(FM). The Boston radio veteran joined Greater Media as GM at WMJX in May 2014. Prior to that, she worked as the market president of Clear Channel Media + Entertainment Boston, where she spent 25 years serving in a variety of capacities, including director of sales, general sales manager, national sales manager and account executive. While in that capacity, she also managed Clear Channel’s Providence market for four years.
A native of Italy, Menna grew up in New Jersey and now resides in Sudbury, Mass., with her husband, Peter Darveau, and two daughters.
Greater Media, Inc. is the parent company of 21 AM and FM radio stations in the Boston, Charlotte, Detroit, New Jersey and Philadelphia markets. It also owns a group of weekly newspapers in central New Jersey as well as several telecommunications towers located throughout the United States.
