When it came time for iHeartMedia to decide who to bring in as the new General Sales Manager for two big FMs in the Windy City, it turned to Entercom.

Now overseeing sales for a “BIG” Country FM and turning on clients to the “Lite” is the former Cluster Sales Manager who gained the role in December 2011 under CBS Radio—Lindsay Lazar.

As of today (2/15), she’s now GSM for WEBG-FM “Big 95.5” and Hot AC WLIT-FM 93.9 “Lite FM.”

In her new role, Lazar will be responsible for managing sales opportunities for the stations and reports to the SVP/Sales for the cluster, Adam Kurtz.

“Lindsay has an impeccable reputation in the Chicago market and a glowing track record of success,” said Kurtz. “She is a proven leader with an exceptional ability to deliver solutions to the advertising community and I am thrilled to welcome her to our team.”

Before taking the role of Cluster Sales Manager for CBS Radio in 2011, she served as VP of Midwest Affiliate Sales for Total Traffic.

From 2007-2010 she was Director of Affiliate Regional Development/Midwest for Total Traffic.

From 2001-2005, Lazar was a National Account Manager for iHeart-owned Premiere Networks.

“This is such an exciting opportunity,” said Lazar. “iHeartMedia has a tremendous reputation coast to coast and particularly here in Chicago, so being asked to join its leadership team is a career high. The station group is strong and respected. Stewarding their continued success and growing their impact in the community is beyond thrilling.”
