CC NYC Gets New VPs/Programming, Sales

In a pre-holiday move, Thea Mitchem has been named as VP/Programming at CCM+E in New York City.  The company also appointed Bernie Weiss as VP/Sales for the market cluster.

Both will report to Joe Puglise, President/Market Manager effective January 1st.

Mitchem has been CC’s President/Market Manager in The Baltimore/Washington, DC market since May of 2011.

"I'm excited to join the Clear Channel Media and Entertainment team in New York City and look forward to working with the incredible programming teams and talented people that make up some of the most iconic brands in our business," said Mitchem, who began her radio career at WPGC/Washington in the '90s.

She joined Clear Channel in 2003 as Director of Urban Programming for WUSL and WDAS-FM & AM/Philadelphia.

Mitchem will  oversee all programming for the five station cluster, which includes Top 40 WHTZ (Z100), Classic Rock WAXQ (Q104.3), Top 40 WKTU, AC WLTW and Urban WWPR. She will manage the strategy and execution of the stations' brands, increasing audience engagement for the market’s broadcast, digital and live entertainment operations. 

Weiss is currently GSM for the New York City cluster.  He’s been with the company since 2004 and has worked his way up from an account executive.

"Over the past few years I have seen firsthand how the company has grown and evolved," said Weiss. "I'm looking forward to building on Clear Channel New York's strength and working with one of the most talented sales teams in the country to convert more non-radio advertisers to our medium as well as our digital assets."
