“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.”
