CBS Radio taps Max Krasny


Max Krasny is now Vice President, Sales and Strategic Alliances at CBS Radio’s Altitude Group.  Based in LA, he will represent the division’s local engagement expertise to Fortune 500 clients, working to create distinctive marketing campaigns and promotions.

Krasny reports to the executive leadership of the Altitude Group, Rich Lobel, EVP/CMO, and Sue McNamara, SVP/Sales.  The Altitude Group is tasked with helping brands connect with consumers using CBS Radio stations, along with CBS Television Stations and their digital properties, as well as CBS’s outdoor assets.

“Max is a seasoned pro who brings a marketing acumen to a client’s business, and knows how to deliver creative excellence that makes brands stand out and get noticed,” said Lobel.  “No one has a better portfolio of local assets under one roof than CBS including: radio, television, out of home, live events, websites, mobile and social apps.”

Added McNamara, “The things we are able to do with our vast array of multi-media platforms are only limited by our imaginations, and with Max based on the West Coast to lead our sales efforts the possibilities are endless.”

Krasny most recently was Executive Vice President/GM, Strategic Partnerships and Western Sales for WestwoodOne programs and alliances including the GRAMMYs, ACM’s, and Live Nation.  He spent close to 20 years at WestwoodOne in a variety of roles, spearheading content, affiliate sales and ad-sales divisions. He started his career in local radio in San Francisco before moving to LA where he worked on a number of hit shows such as “Ferrall on the Bench” and “Loveline.”
