SummitMedia Hawaii hires Matt Ryder


Matt is now Vice President of Sales and Marketing at SummitMedia Hawaii.  Ryder will be responsible for overseeing the sales and marketing for SummitMedia’s Honolulu stations and bringing custom, local advertising solutions to advertisers and agencies.

Ryder comes from the CBS Altitude Group based in New York City where he served as Director of Strategic Sales for the past five years.  While at CBS, he focused on developing custom multi-market, cross-platform advertising campaigns across all local CBS assets for both advertisers and agencies.  In late 2009, Matt began doing weekends on air on 92.3 NOW, CBS RADIO’s top 40 station based in New York.  Previously, Ryder gained national sales experience at Clear Channel Media + Entertainment.  Growing up with a passion for radio, Ryder began his career as a weekend DJ on a country radio station in Fort Walton Beach, FL and quickly moved up the on air ranks in markets in the southeastern United States.

“I’m thrilled to be joining the SummitMedia Hawaii team and move to Hawaii which holds a very special place in my heart.”

TJ Malievsky, Vice President/Market Manager of SummitMedia Hawaii stated, “Having someone with Matt’s exuberance and experience join our executive team here in Hawaii will impact SummitMedia Hawaii positively and immediately. His aloha for the people of Hawaii will only further the heritage relationship now in place with our listeners, clients and staff.  We eagerly look forward to Matt joining the Summit team.”
