Welling rises from the Director of Sales role for Cumulus Media’s eight-station cluster in Toledo/Monroe, OH, where he previously served as General Sales Manager. Prior to that, Welling was General Sales Manager and Director of Sales for Great Plains Media in Bloomington/Normal, IL, and was Local Sales Manager for ESPN Radio in Toledo. He holds a B.S. in Economics and Marketing from Ashland University.
Mark Sullivan, Regional Vice President, Cumulus Media said: “This is a terrific move for the company and for Cody. Cody’s strong track record of success and dynamic management style are already paying dividends in Shreveport and I look forward to his success and professional growth as our VP/Market Manager.”
Welling said: “I’m excited to lead Cumulus Media’s legendary group of stations in the Shreveport, Louisiana market. The passion of our team in Shreveport has made this an easy transition. The leadership from CEO, Mary Berner, SVP Jeff Brown, and RVP Mark Sullivan truly represents Cumulus’s goal of individual markets serving their community, listeners, clients, shareholders, and our employees. All great leaders are surrounded by great people along the way. I would like to thank my former Cumulus team in Toledo, along with Toledo- Monroe RVP Andy Stuart and DOS Dana DiModica for their support in my new role.”
