Weezie Kramer Promoted To Entercom Station Group President
March 26, 2013
Entercom Communications Corp. announced today that Weezie Kramer has been elevated to the newly-created position of Station Group President. Kramer, who has served as a Regional President for Entercom since 2005, will oversee the operations of all 121 Entercom radio stations.
In her new role, Kramer will oversee Entercom Regional Presidents Michael Doyle and Deborah Kane and chair the companyís operating committee. She will also continue to oversee a number of the companyís 23 markets and report to Entercom President/CEO David Field.
Field said, "For years, we have operated with three wonderfully talented regional presidents, but the time has come to align our station group under a single operational leader to drive stronger organizational cohesiveness and effectiveness. In elevating Weezie to this role, we will enhance our coordination and clarity and drive faster decision-making. She will continue to work closely with Deborah Kane and Michael Doyle, providing an outstanding leadership team for our markets."
He added, "Weezie is an extraordinarily talented and highly effective leader who is driven to excel. She is incredibly bright, dedicated, and innovative and has unimpeachable integrity and character. There is no question in my mind that in her new, elevated role, she will make us a stronger, more effective organization."
Since 2000, Kramer has served as a member of Entercomís operating committee and has been responsible for operations in ten Entercom markets (Boston, Seattle, Denver, Portland, Kansas City, Milwaukee, Providence, Springfield, Madison and Norfolk), as well as spearheading the companyís reinvention efforts, where she has focused on developing enhancements to drive the companyís future growth. Kramer is also a past chair of the RAB Board of Directors. She was the first woman to chair the RAB Board, and currently serves on the RAB Executive Committee.
"The great thing about loving what one does is that it is never work. So I am even more excited to take on this new responsibility and work with Michael, Deborah, and our teams in our continuous effort to improve the execution of plans," said Kramer. "Entercom is blessed with outstanding brands, personalities, digital assets, and people who work tirelessly to deliver great content and results to our fans and customers. Having the opportunity to lead this team will be fun."
