“To be tapped as the leader of Cumulus San Francisco is both exciting and humbling. This is without question one of the most coveted positions in all of broadcasting, not just radio. The history and prestige of these stations in the San Francisco community comes with great responsibility. We will not take that lightly,” Sklenar said.
“The opportunity to return to San Francisco and represent Cumulus Media’s prestigious call letters and dynamic cluster is a dream come true,” said Crespo. “In addition, I will be able to continue to work with Steve Sklenar, one of the best leaders and most respected mangers in the radio industry.”
“Steve and Kevin are well-suited to take leadership and sales development roles at this legendary cluster of stations. They will round out a solid team that’s contributing significantly to our growth in San Francisco. After meeting with numerous qualified candidates, John Dickey and I are confident that these two gentlemen will have immediate positive impact on our business moving forward,” said Jon Pinch, Executive Vice President and co-COO of Cumulus.
