Simon will oversee the Republic and Island Records roster at the Hot AC and AC formats. He brings over a decade of promotion experience to this position.

Spangler comments, “Manny truly embodies the forward-thinking spirit at Republic Records. Given his acumen and history at the formats, he will prove integral to the success of all Republic and Island promotion campaigns.”

“I want to thank Charlie and Gary for the opportunity to join this incredible team and I look forward to contributing to the growing legacy Republic Records has created,” says Simon. “In the past couple of years, Hot AC has emerged as one of radio’s fastest growing formats and I look forward to continuing to propel that trend as a strategic partner with our artists and radio.”
