Gilbert Joins CBS Radio/Dallas

August 2, 2010: Red Zebra Broadcasting CEO Bruce Gilbert will soon head to Dallas, as VP/News, Talk, and Sports programming for CBS Radio's Sports KRLD-FM (105.3 the Fan) and News KRLD-AM, effective August 16. Gilbert succeeds Tom Bigby, who returns to his role as VP of strategic programming for CBS Radio; he's also been serving as the Fan's OM since last year. Kurt Johnson, meanwhile, focuses on the cluster's music stations as VP/programming.

Gilbert has been heading up the Washington, DC-based Red Zebra since 2007, when he took over from Bennett Zier, and before that was GM of the ESPN Radio Network.

"We're extremely delighted that that Bruce is returning to the Metroplex to be part of the CBS Radio/Dallas-Fort Worth team," Market Manager Brian Purdy said. "His reputation and experience are exceptional and will have an immediate impact on our stations' presentation."

Gilbert said, "I am genuinely excited excited to join Brian and the entire CBS Radio/Dallas team. My wife and I are thrilled to be returning to Texas, and I am inspired and challenged by the professional opportunity to work with the many talented individuals responsible for the terrific news, talk and sports content CBS Radio produces each day."

Obviously this company did not due their research. Bruce Gilbert is unethical, not trustworthy. I suggest they call his prior work references.
