CBS Radio Sales

From this morning's RAMP Newsletter...

CBS Radio Chicago announced two significant changes within its sales department, promoting cluster vet Paul Agase to the newly created position of Director of Music Sales, and hiring market vet John Cravens as the cluster's new Director of News and Sports Sales. Agase most recently served as GSM of CBS Radio Top 40 WBBM-FM (B96), Country WUSN (US99.5) and Classic Hits WJMK (104.3 K-Hits) -- in his new role he will continue to oversee sales for those stations and now annexes sales oversight of Triple A WXRT. John Cravens was most recently VP/GM of crosstown ESPN affiliate outlet WMVP-AM; he will now oversee sales for News simulcast WBBM-AM & WCFS-FM, Sports/Talk WSCR-AM (670 The Score) and sports play-by-play sales for the Chicago Bears and Cubs. Tim Pohlman, SVP/Market Manager for CBS Radio Chicago said, "I'm extremely excited to have two senior veterans in the market lead our sales efforts with the great brands of CBS Radio Chicago. Paul and John have been leaders in the Chicago market for many years. Their solid relationships with partners, clients, and our internal team will be key to growing our revenue in the years ahead."
