Local Radio Networks (LRN) announces that Matt Caldaronello has joined its team of 24/7 music format experts as Vice President of Affiliate Sales.
The announcement comes days after Caldaronello resigned from Cumulus Media’s Westwood One Network, where he was the #1 seller of 24/7 music format affiliations. The move occurs only 18 months after three former Westwood One executives joined LRN’s expanding team. More executive announcements are expected in the coming weeks, as LRN continues to grow and strengthen its position.
“Broadcasters are ready for a positive change,” stated Caldaronello. “LRN is dedicated exclusively to 24/7 music programming, which allows them to focus entirely on the needs of local broadcasters. LRN’s strategic relationships with ABC News Radio for award-winning news and with Skyview Networks for advanced XDS satellite delivery add more high-quality options for affiliates. I’m excited about the opportunities and new tools that I can now offer owners and operators, including maximum flexibility and control, along with quick turnaround solutions.”
Caldaronello has more than 20 years of network radio experience in 24/7 music formats. During his most recent role as Vice President of Affiliate Management for Westwood One, he oversaw approximately 800 station affiliations and was responsible for generating new affiliate business and renewals.
