We now have the name of the new market manager who will take oversight at Clear Channel's Akron/Canton cluster.
And though he comes to Freedom Avenue from out of state, he's no stranger to Ohio.
Bill Clark comes to the local group from the Clear Channel cluster in Macon GA. But we hear that he's also a "20-plus year veteran" of the Toledo market.
And sure enough, we found this Clear Channel press release from 2004, when he was appointed to the Macon market manager post:
For the last 25 years, Bill Clark has had a very successful career in Toledo, radio market #82.
For the last 16 years, Clark has been with Clear Channel Radio as Local Sales Manager, General Sales Manager and, most recently, as Director of Sales.
