Clear Channel Media and Entertainment-Philadelphia names Richard Lewis as Market President for its six station cluster, effective immediately. Lewis will report to Tom Schurr, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment’s President of Operations for its Major Markets. Lewis' new position was originally announced in late December, along with Dennis Lamme's appointment as Market President for CCM+E-Washington, D.C./Baltimore.

In his new role as Market President, Lewis will leverage Clear Channel-Philadelphia’s brands, audience and all assets "to provide quality programming and create new revenue opportunities." Lewis will also oversee all station activities and events to help drive sales and achieve revenue targets. Overall, Lewis will be responsible for all aspects of the market’s operations including all strategies, programming and sales initiatives.

Lewis is promoted from within CCM+E-Philadelphia, where he most recently served as VP of Sales as well as a Sales Category Captain for the Retail Category Division. He has been in the broadcast industry since 1975 and with Clear Channel Media and Entertainment since 1992. Lewis previously served as Market Manager for Clear Channel’s Harrisburg and Allentown markets, as well as holding the position in Philadelphia from 2001 through 2005.

"I am thrilled to return to the role as Market President for Philadelphia. It's such an amazing opportunity to work with some of the most talented people within Clear Channel Media and Entertainment," said Lewis. "I look forward to continuing our winning streak through audience and revenue growth."

"Richard has a proven track record of successful revenue generation in Philadelphia," said Schurr. "I am confident that Rich will lead the Philadelphia market to continued success in all aspects of our operations."
