This marks a return to Buffalo for Riley, who was General Sales Manager for Cumulus’ four-station group there prior to his promotion to Vice President/Market Manager for Cumulus Media-Erie, PA, in 2005. Riley started his career in Harrisburg, PA, and has led sales organizations in Rochester, NY; Fayetteville, NC; Buffalo, NY; and Washington, DC.
Bob Walker, Executive Vice President, Cumulus Media, said: "Jim is a passionate broadcaster with a proven track record of success leading sales organizations and most recently leading our team in Erie as Market Manager the last 12 years. We are excited to welcome Jim back to our cluster in Buffalo and to a community where Jim was eager to return."
Riley said: "There is a tremendous heritage in this city and with these stations, and I am extremely proud to be returning to this team and this town. Thanks to Mary Berner, Bob Walker and the Cumulus team in Erie for giving me this opportunity."
