Cox Media Group’s (CMG) Atlanta Radio has named Beth Bowers as its new General Sales Manager for News Talk WSB 750 AM and 95.5 FM. Bowers succeeds Walt Phillips, who was promoted to Director of Sales for CMG Atlanta Radio Group in September.
In addition to continuing the proven tradition of success at News Talk WSB, Bowers will partner with the team of GSMs at the other stations in the cluster – 97.1 The River, KISS 104.1 and B98.5. Together, the team will strategically lead CMG Atlanta’s radio sales organization into the future and offer unprecedented opportunities for advertising clients in the Greater Atlanta market.
“I’m confident that Beth will continue to lead WSB sales team to higher levels of productivity while further developing and coaching her team, recruiting top talent and continue to deliver results for our clients,” said Phillips.
Bowers most recently was LSM for WSB. Before joining in January 2011, she was Director of Marketing for CMG Atlanta radio.
“Beth has jumped right in during a time of transition and continued to keep the sales team focused while also building great momentum heading into 2014,” added Phillips.
“I’m honored to be given the opportunity to lead this legendary station, as well as partner with the most talented sales staff in the country,” said Bowers.
