Clear Channel Announces Changes in Regional Leadership
Source: Arkansas Business.com There have been some changes at Clear Channel involving upper management types who ultimately oversee two of its Little Rock TV stations.
Chuck Spohn, Clear Channel's local general manager and vice president of KLRT-TV, Channel 16, and KASN-TV, Channel 38, is staying put, but the company has a new regional vice president and executive vice president/chief operating officer.
On June 8, Clear Channel promoted Don Perry, this region's former vice president, to executive vice president and chief operating officer. He will oversee operations for the company's 40 television stations in the U.S. as well as the division's six regional vice presidents.
The company filled Perry's former position last week by promoting Craig Millar, the vice president and general manager of KOKI-TV and KTFO-TV in Tulsa, Okla.
Perry said Millar's primary role now will be to oversee Clear Channel's operations in Wichita, Little Rock and Tulsa, as well as fulfilling his duties as GM in Tulsa.
"As far as viewers are concerned and what happens here on a day-to-day basis, this should present zero impact and has no downside," Spohn said. "The upside is that it's a positive to have somebody who is familiar with our operation and our market as chief operations officer."
