Greater Media's Tom Baker Announces Retirement

1-30-2012

Baker is the Vice President & Market Manager for five Greater Media properties in Boston (WROR-FM, WBOS-FM, WTKK-FM, WMJX-FM and WKLB-FM) Baker will be replaced by Rob Williams (pictured right) on February 6th. Williams was a long time executive with Clear Channel Radio, where he was responsible for the company’s largest region by revenue (29 markets including major markets New York City, Philadelphia, and Boston), and later served as President and Market Manager for Clear Channel’s industry-leading New York City stations, among them the legendary Z100 and perennial highest-billing radio station in the U.S., WLTW. 

Baker said, "I will truly miss the day to day interaction with my wonderful co-workers and clients who have become my friends, but I am really looking forward to welcoming two additional grandchildren this year, one on the east coast and one on the west coast, and spending more time with my growing family."

Greater Media CEO Peter Smyth said “Tom’s contributions to the team have been immeasurable since he joined the organization in January of 2009. We wish him the very best as he begins the next chapter in his life. I consider it a privilege to call him my friend. Rob is the perfect choice to lead the Greater Media Boston team. His wealth of knowledge and outstanding track record speaks for itself. We are thrilled to welcome him to our family.”
