Hubbard Radio Announces CEO Transition
Hubbard Radio today announced planned changes to its executive management team. Ginny Morris will maintain her Chairmanship and become Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately. Bruce Reese, current President and Chief Executive Officer, will continue his involvement with the company as Special Advisor to Hubbard Radio.

Reese first joined Bonneville International in 1984 and was appointed President and CEO in 1996. An industry leader, he was instrumental in the transition when the 17 Bonneville radio stations across four markets (Washington, D.C., Chicago, St. Louis and Cincinnati) were purchased by Hubbard Radio in 2011. The acquisition also meant the addition of 547 Bonneville employees.

According to Morris, “Working with Bruce over these last three and a half years on the integration, first on the Bonneville assets and subsequently those we bought from Sandusky and merged into a new Hubbard Radio, has been a great experience. Bruce is smart and strategic and he shares many of the values that our family holds dear—a commitment to localism, honesty and integrity. He has helped to establish a great foundation for the company and we are grateful to still have the benefit of his wise counsel.”

Said Reese, “Over the last two decades, I’ve had the opportunity to run two great radio companies. After Bonneville was brought into Hubbard Radio, we all worked to preserve the values and spirit of both organizations while creating one corporate identity and culture. The success of the transition has exceeded my hopes, and I am grateful for the trust shown to me by Ginny and the entire Hubbard Radio family. Our company is performing well, and the time is right for Ginny to step into this role. I look forward to continuing to work with the Hubbard team in an advisory capacity while eagerly looking forward to the next chapter in my life.”

Morris has been chair of Hubbard Radio since 2011 and is a third-generation broadcaster with over 30 years of radio and television broadcasting experience. She currently serves on the board of the Radio Advertising Bureau, Broadcast Music, Inc., the Library of American Broadcasting and the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB). In May 2013, Morris was honored with the National Radio Award by NAB and the Radio Advertising Bureau for her outstanding leadership in the industry. Additionally, Morris serves as a board member of the University of Minnesota Foundation and University of St. Thomas.
