iHeartMedia named Kevin LeGrett as president of iHeartMedia Sports, a newly created role.
The portfolio includes the iHeartSports Network, which provides sports content and updates on 500+ stations; the Fox Sports Network, with syndicated names like Colin Cowherd and Dan Patrick; and 80 sports talk stations. It also crosses over into the iHeartPodcast Network, with 40 national and 100 local sports podcasts and a recently announced podcast deal with the NFL.
LeGrett currently is division president and president of the L.A. region for iHeartMedia.
The announcement was made by Greg Ashlock, CEO of the Multi-Platform Group at iHeartMedia.
Alexis Ginas becomes president for Los Angeles, its largest revenue region, and will report to LeGrett, who retains his role of division president for the Markets Group. Ginas was involved with two IPO leadership teams and most recently was at Madison Valley, a media and technology consulting practice that she founded.
