Hubbard Radio announced 7/18 that Drew Horowitz, EVP/COO, would become President and COO, effective immediately. Ginny Morris will remain chairman and CEO. Earlier this month Bruce Reese stepped down as CEO at Hubbard Radio.
“For the past few years I have had the privilege to work with Drew and see first-hand what a gifted broadcaster he is,” said Morris. “Drew’s passion for the radio business and for the people with whom he works is evident in how he approaches every opportunity and every challenge. I look forward to further partnering with him as we continue to move our business forward.”
Before joining Hubbard Radio in 2011, Horowitz was the executive vice president and chief operating officer of Bonneville International, where his tenure began in 1992. His prior experience also includes leadership positions with Lakeshore Communications, WFYR Radio/Chicago and WUSN Radio/Chicago.
He currently serves on the boards of the Illinois Broadcasters Association and La Rabida Children’s Hospital, and previously served on the City Year board of directors in Chicago for 14 years. He was also named the Vincent T. Wasilewski “Broadcaster of the Year” by the Illinois Broadcasters Association in 2013.
“I am honored to have this wonderful opportunity to work more closely with Ginny and to be part of this extraordinary family-owned company,” said Horowitz. “I’m looking forward to continuing my work with the rest of the leadership team to further Hubbard Radio’s success across our seven nationwide markets.”
