There’s a new Market President for the iHeartMedia stations serving the Minneapolis-St. Paul market.
Taking the post is Greg Alexander, who is being promoted.
Alexander has served as SVP/Sales for the Western Great Lakes Region, after being appointed SVP/Sales for the iHeart Twin Cities stations in 2012. In his most recent role, he directed sales efforts at iHeartRadio stations in Minneapolis-St. Paul and Rochester, Minn.; and Milwaukee, Madison and Eau Claire, Wisc.
As Market President, Alexander will be responsible for overseeing programming, advertising and operations across iHeartMedia/Minneapolis stations. He reports to Scott Hopeck, Division President for iHeartMedia.
“Greg’s extensive experience qualified him for this role, but more importantly his team lifted him into it, which is a testament to his leadership,” Hopeck said. “I’m confident that Greg and his team will lead our Minneapolis operation to new heights.”
Alexander began his career with Interep National Radio Sales, and then moved into a leadership role in South Florida at Spanish Broadcasting System (SBS). He joined iHeart in its Miami-Fort Lauderdale station group, rising from Director of National Sales to GSM before relocating to Minneapolis.
“This is an incredible opportunity to work with some of the country’s best brands and the
industry’s brightest minds,” Alexander said. “I look forward to collaborating with the
programming, advertising, and operations teams while helping elevate the Minneapolis market.”
