November 3, 2011

Clear Channel Radio continues its reorganization with the announcement of 24 appointments to its new Brand Management Team, a part of its new National Programming Platforms; and the appointment of Kelly Doherty as Director of Imaging. All positions are effective immediately.

Tom Poleman, recently appointed President of National Programing Platforms leads the division, which focuses on developing on-air and digital programming content as well as live events that will leverage Clear Channelís 850 stations and websites and iHeartRadio for listeners, advertisers and strategic partners.

The new Brand Management Team, which consists of a Brand Manager and Brand Coordinator for each format, will serve as Clear Channelís in-house format experts. The team will help manage the Premium Choice Network. The team will also be available to consult with select stations and to assist Clear Channelís Senior Vice Presidents of Programming as needed throughout the country, and will gather and share format-specific content, information and resources throughout the field.  Other responsibilities will include the development of format-specific contest opportunities and involvement in research and major marketing initiatives executed within their respective formats.  Darren Davis, SVP/GM of National Programming Platforms will lead the Brand Management Team.

"The collective expertise of this team is unmatched.  Iím excited to have them play a lead role in all facets of leveraging our national on-air, digital and special event content," said Poleman.

"Our Brand Managers are an unprecedented team of the top-performing format experts chosen because of their track record of ratings success, their reputation both inside and outside of Clear Channel and feedback from managers throughout our organization.
