Jones Radio Networks promoted Eric Wiler to the position of vice president of technology for JRN.
Wiler, in his second stint with JRN, came to the company in the early 1990s as a part-time engineer, eventually working his way to director of engineering. He left in 1998 to work for Clear Channel’s Premiere Radio Networks but returned in 2001 to supervise the launch of JRN’s Starguide platform and manage projects including the conversion of the JDAS receiver platform.
Wiler will direct the efforts of technical departments within JRN, including Broadcast Engineering, Distribution Services and Information Technology.
In a recent interview with RW, Wiler discussed the launch of the Jones Digital Audio Server, a delivery technology platform for distribution of radio content manufactured by Wegener.
