Spanish Broadcasting System promotes Elisa Torres to Chief Network Officer/Executive VP for Aire Radio Networks and SBS National. Torres, the first female executive to hold a Chief position at SBS, will continue to oversee AIRE Radio Networks and spearhead the advancement of all network and national audio sales and marketing solutions. She was elevated to EVP in 2017 and initially joined SBS in 2013 to lead the establishment of AIRE Radio Networks and its syndication efforts.
