Farias Finds Career Peak In Colorado Springs


Pikes Peak is clearly visible from most of Colorado Springs, especially at this time of year.

For Jessica Farias, a different kind of peak has arrived for her in this city to the south of Denver.

Effective immediately, Farias is now Market President for iHeartMedia’s stations in the market.

As Market President, Farias will work closely with the programming, business and sales teams and will oversee the market’s on-air and digital programming as well as create new business and revenue growth opportunities. In addition, Farias will continue to oversee the Political Strategy for the Denver Region.

She reports to Tim Hager, President of iHeartMedia’s Denver cluster.

“Over the years, I’ve marveled at Jessica’s ability to lead and motivate a winning team, to cultivate impactful relationships and elevate her department to unmatched heights,” Hager said. “I’m so proud of what Jess has accomplished. I now have the privilege of watching her grow within our region and lead a best-in-class team at iHeartMedia Colorado Springs.”

Hager was formerly Region VP/Sales for iHeartMedia/Denver and has also been VP/Sales for KBCO-FM and KTCL-FM, the Adult Alternative and Rock Alternative stations serving the Denver market. Farias began her career at 630 KHOW and KSYY in Denver.

“As a Colorado native, I’m thrilled to join the iHeart Colorado Springs team,” Farias said. “Not only is Colorado Springs one of the fastest growing markets for millennials, has a low unemployment rate and is considered one of the nation’s best cities for business and careers, but I also get to see Pikes Peak every day!”
