The agreement is effective immediately, and no decisions have been made regarding the format future for this property. 
         “We’re thrilled our Atlanta Radio team has added another great property to our top-shelf portfolio,” said CMG Atlanta Radio’s VP and Market Manager Ben Reed. “We look forward to integrating WTSH into our content and sales strategy while engaging a socially-savvy demographic.”

CCM+E Boston names Ian Carrera VP of Sales and Matt Tilden GSM, effective immediately.
