Since 1989, Larry Bastida has been in Oklahoma City as VP/Market Manager of a seven-station cluster. Under his management, the cluster has won “Citadel Market of The Year” in 2000 and “Cumulus Media’s President’s Cup” in 2012.
In addition to his leadership roles in Oklahoma City, Bastida also served as Regional Manager for Citadel’s stations in Little Rock, Arkansas, and Bloomington, Illinois.
“During my 30+ years in Oklahoma City and working along-side great and successful staffs, the current OKC Cumulus staff is, without a doubt, the greatest version ever! Thinking of words to explain a voluntary exit has been exhausting because I love them all! I’m intimately aware of each team member’s unique talents and contributions, and I know in my heart they will continue thrive—full-throttle! The phrase “full-throttle” is apropos for me well, as I rejoin Larry Wilson and Bob Proffitt, and the great group of others, already in Alpha Media’s fold,” added Bastida.
