As the president and chief executive officer at Entercom, few would argue that David Field has carried himself well. So it’s no surprise that he will be honored with the National Radio Award at the 2017 Radio Show. The award will be presented on Wednesday, September 6, at the Radio Luncheon.
Entercom was already the fourth-largest radio broadcasting company in the US when, earlier this year, it announced a merger with CBS Radio that will make it the second-largest radio company. It will then have over 240 stations and roughly $1.6 billion in revenues. That’s quite a deal to preside over. And Field has presided over a great deal of growth at Entercom. Prior to becoming the company’s president in 1998, he served in multiple positions at Entercom, including chief operating officer and chief financial officer. Prior to joining Entercom, he was an investment banker at Goldman, Sachs & Co. in New York.
Field has made Institutional Investor’s list of the Best CEOs in America three times. Additionally, he serves on the boards of directors of Entercom, the National Constitution Center, The Wilderness Society, and the Madison Council of the Library of Congress. He is a former chairman of the NAB Radio Board.
“David’s passion for radio and business savvy have led Entercom to new heights,” said NAB Executive Vice President of Radio John David. “We look forward to recognizing him for his continuous dedication and significant contributions to the business.”
The 2017 Radio Show, presented by the NAB and RAB, will be held in Austin, September 5-8. Additional information is available HERE.
