IRVING, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Salem Media Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: SALM) today announced several changes to the leadership structure of its Broadcast Media division that will take place in early 2023.
Allen Power will assume the role of President, Broadcast Media. Salem CEO David Santrella said, “Allen Power and I have worked and collaborated closely for 18 of my 21 years with Salem. His deep operational experience combined with his strong leadership hand provide a perfect combination to build a brighter future for the broadcast division.
Power commented, “My years with Salem have been the most rewarding of my career so far. Our dual purpose of doing well while doing good provides a unique media culture. I am grateful for the leadership of our founders Edward Atsinger and Stuart Epperson, and grateful to Dave Santrella and David Evans for the opportunity to play this role as our company continues to grow as a multimedia platform.
In other leadership advancements, Linnae Young is promoted from Senior Vice President, Operations to Executive Vice President, Operations and Revenue Development. In Young’s new expanded role, she will work across Salem’s broadcast and digital platform to develop the company’s 360-degree approach for our marketing and corporate partners. Santrella said, “Linnae has been my go-to whenever we have had the opportunity to sell multiple marketing pieces from multiple divisions to new clients. His work in our industry on behalf of Salem with many clients made this decision easy for me. Linnae brings out the best in those she works with, and I can’t wait to see her touch the whole division.
Chicago regional vice president and general manager Jeff Reisman is promoted to senior vice president, operations, overseeing radio markets in the east. Santrella commented, “Allen and I have worked closely with Jeff for many years. His track record in Chicago speaks for itself. He was the first building block of what is now Salem Surround, our digital marketing agency.
Power said: “Jeff sets the bar for Salem with some of the most profitable and well-attended events for our business and has taken that attitude to the markets he has overseen. I can’t wait to see that same success spread to the entire Eastern Super Region.
Regarding these promotions, Santrella commented, “I would like to highlight that these three promotions are all from our Salem team, which is further proof that Salem appreciates and believes in our employees and rewards hard work and success.”
