As Vice President of Programming, Coleman will be responsible for overseeing the programming content and operations for all eight radio stations. In addition, she will host middays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on 98.5 WYLD. Coleman will report to Bob Murphy, Senior Vice President of Programming for iHeartMedia’s Louisiana Metro Markets.
Coleman joins iHeartMedia New Orleans from V100.7 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where she served as program director and an on-air host. Her career at V100.7 spans 19 years as a well-known on-air personality. Most recently, she has also served as a member of iHeartMedia’s innovation team that uses technology to create community-based multi-platform listening experiences.
“Bailey is already part of an innovative team that is leading our brands into the new decade,” said Murphy. “Bailey’s move to the New Orleans market brings her incredible expertise to an already stellar programming team.”
“I am so thankful to be selected to work with an amazing group of talented people in the iHeartMedia New Orleans market,” said Coleman. “I look forward to connecting with the NOLA audience and working together with the team on our market-leading brands in my role as Vice President of Programming.”
Coleman is assuming the position recently held by Uptown Angela Watson-Charles, who was elevated to an Executive Vice President of Programming role within the company’s new Community Division.
