The newly formed Clear Media Network, which offers Adult Contemporary, Country and Adult R&B 24/7 formats expressly for independently owned radio broadcasting companies, has forged a network ad sales and advertiser inventory management agreement with syndication company Key Networks.

“Key Networks is thrilled to partner with them as they build out their network
going forward,” said EVP of Ad Sales Rich Baum. 

Gary Spurgeon, COO of Clear Media Network, added, “We are excited about having Rich Baum and the team at Key Networks represent our new music network. This partnership will only enhance our market position and affiliate opportunities.”

Spurgeon is a 42-year broadcasting veteran who was most recently SVP at Salem Media and, prior to that, as VP/GM for Urban One’s Houston radio operations.
