Cumulus Media has named radio vet Kim Bryant as Market Manager of its New York cluster. She will oversee all sales and station operations at the cluster. Bryant was most recently EVP of Marketing and Sales for the international cable channel Cinemoi.
Cumulus COO/EVP Jon Pinch stated, "Kim is perfect to lead our legendary New York brands, WABC and WPLJ and to introduce our new station to the market. As you would expect, we had hundreds of applicants for this position and KIM, with her passion for radio and incredible resume, was always our first choice. With WFME expected to close shortly, Cumulus will own and operate a significant cluster in market #1 and Kim's leadership will be essential for our continued success."
"I believe this is one of the most exciting times in broadcasting. With all of the platforms at our reach from digital, video to social media and the important roll that radio plays in all of it," Bryant adds. "There is no place that I would rather be then with a progressive company like Cumulus and in one of the most important markets like New York City. I am thrilled to be working with the Cumulus team and one of the fastest growing radio companies in the U.S. today."
