"My goal is to grow the Clear Channel Washington, D.C./Baltimore market including both our team’s capabilities as well as revenue for the cluster," said Lamme. "As Clear Channel Media and Entertainment continues to grow and change, I’m excited to continue with the company.”

"Dennis Lamme has been a great leader for both the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh markets which further proves he is the perfect person to take on this role," said Schurr. "His success with Clear Channel Media and Entertainment has been recognized and we know he will bring his great management skills with him to lead the Washington, D.C./Baltimore market to continued success."

In Philadelphia, Lewis will also report to Schurr. In his new role as Market President, Lewis will leverage CCME+-Philadelphia’s brands, audience and all assets to provide quality programming and create new revenue opportunities.  He will oversee all station activities and events to help drive sales and achieve revenue targets.  Overall, Lamme 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 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.
