Cumulus Makes Major Management Changes


Cumulus has made several senior management changes around the country. Donna Baker (pictured), currently Market Manager of Cumulus-Houston, moves to Chicago as Market Manager of WLS AM/FM. Donna joined Cumulus as Market Manager of Kansas City in  2008. She replaces Dave Crowl who will take on additional RVP duties in his expanded region and continue to oversee operations in Chicago.

Baker said, "It's an understatement to say this is an honor and privilege to lead WLS, and I appreciate the opportunity. It's incredibly special. Being home in the Midwest close to family is the icing on that beautiful cake."

Chuck Bortnick, currently RVP for Cumulus northeast markets, moves to Houston to take the reins at KRBE as well as RVP responsibility for markets in that region to be announced shortly. Chuck is very familiar with the area after spending 9 years in Houston during two previous tours of duty.

Cumulus COO Jon Pinch said “Chuck, Donna and Dave are top performers and well suited for their new responsibilities. We are fortunate to be able to continue to reward our top managers in the company and promote from within.”
