After 18 years in sales leadership roles at Cox Media Group’s Houston station group, Judy Lakin is leaving at the end of the year.

Her successor has just been named.

Starting Dec. 17, Director/Sales duties will be handed to Todd Elbrink.

In this role, he will oversee Classic Hits KGLK-FM, Country KKBQ-FM, and Country Legends KTHT-FM, including all digital marketing solutions.

“I’m honored to join the CMG family,” Elbrink said. “Upon meeting the Houston team, I immediately felt at home. I’m eager to provide our business partners with continued unparalleled success through exceptional radio brands, digital media and research solutions.”
