Steve Carver Named SVP/Market Manager For CBS Radio-Tampa
August 19, 2013
CBS Radio EVP Of Operations Scott Herman announces that CBS Radio-Los Angeles Market Manager Steve Carver will be heading east as SVP/Market Manager for the broadcaster's Tampa cluster. Carver replaces Ben Hill, who Herman says had only committed to a year leading CBS's Tampa cluster, after heading up the CBS Radio-West Palm Beach cluster until its sale.
Carver has a long history with CBS Radio, while also having spent time in publishing at The Hartford Courant and at WATL-TV/Atlanta.
Herman adds, "This move allows Ben to move on knowing he delivered not only on his promise of service to CBS Radio, but on his commitment to lead yet another market to ratings and revenue growth. Ben will continue in his current role and Steve in his during transitions that will occur over the coming weeks. Steve will arrive in Tampa the week of September 9 with Friday, October 11 as Benís last day in the office. Ben has also agreed to remain available to us through the end of the year."
Carver's move to Florida happens in tandem with today's announcement of Daniel Kearney as CBS Radio-Los Angeles' new SVP/Market Manager.
