The Radio Advertising Bureau will have a new leader come April.

RAB has announced that Mike Hulvey, CEO of Neuhoff Media, will step in as president and CEO of RAB on April 1.

Erica Farber, who has led the nonprofit group for about 12 years, is stepping down to pursue other interests, though she will continue to work with the RAB’s Rising Through the Ranks leadership training program and the National Radio Talent System, a subsidiary of RAB.

The organization said in its announcement that under Farber, RAB was reshaped into a full-service integrated membership, business development and training organization. It also credited her with being responsible for diversifying and reinvigorating RAB’s board of directors.

“Mike is an excellent selection with the relevant skills and expertise to lead the RAB. He has an impressive track record in corporate management and local radio expertise,” said Jeff Warshaw, chair of the RAB board and founder and CEO of Connoisseur Media, in the announcement.

He said that as a past chair of the RAB, Hulvey has a clear understanding of the organization and what the industry requires from it.

Hulvey began producing local radio programs in high school in 1980, started full-time in the industry in 1984 and rose through the ranks to become president and CEO of Neuhoff Media, which owns 24 radio stations in six communities in Illinois and Indiana as well as a digital services business.

He has been president of the International Broadcasters Idea Bank and a member of the NAB board of directors.

Steve Wexler will serve as interim CEO at Neuhoff and will begin working with the Neuhoff team in January.

Before her time at RAB, Farber became well known in the industry as the publisher and CEO of Radio & Records. She was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame by the Museum of Broadcast Communications in 2021.

Warshaw thanked Farber for her leadership. “She’s left an indelible imprint on the industry, and we can’t thank her enough for her commitment and passion to radio.”
