He has been with the company since 2019

Cumulus Media announced Monday that Brian Philips has been promoted to chief content officer. He will now be responsible for content across all Cumulus platforms, reporting to Mary Berner, president and chief executive officer of the company.

Berner said Philips is an “exceptional executive” and will do well to lead the company’s programming efforts as it continues its audio-first strategy, “which is transforming the company from a traditional radio broadcaster into a multi-dimensional audio media company,” she said.

“This promotion reflects Brian’s tremendous contributions, and I have full confidence in his creative vision, operational expertise, and savvy leadership to guide us through this critical evolution.”
