The role is part of local group's ongoing leadership and organizational restructuring since its acquisition in early January. Arriens will oversee the company's five Charlotte outlets, including News/Talk WBT 1110 AM & 99.3 FM, Sports WFNZ 610 AM & W273DA 102.5 FM and HotAC WLNK 107.9 FM.
Arriens will also oversee all components of the cluster's day-to-day Programming, while manage the syndication efforts for the Bob and Sheri Network.
"We are focused on maximizing our impact across all of our stations, being the best local marketing solutions partner and continuing to deliver the outstanding content that our fans have come to expect from us," said VP/Market Manager Matt Hanlon. "The move to establish a director of operations role underscores our commitment to being best-in-class. I am thrilled to welcome Darrin to the Entercom Charlotte family."
"I am thrilled to join Entercom Charlotte during this new and exciting time for local Charlotte radio," added Arriens. "I am looking forward to joining the community and being a part of the great work that is happening across our stations."
Previously, Arriens served as a Regional Director of Operations for Citadel Broadcasting, overseeing 55 stations in the Midwest.
