Mitchem will join the New York market from Clear Channel Washington, D.C./Baltimore, where she has served as President and Market Manager for the nine station cluster since May 2011. She began her career at Infinity Broadcasting’s WPGC-FM in the 1990s and joined Clear Channel in 2003 as Director of Urban Programming for Philadelphia’s legendary Urban stations WDAS-FM, WUSL-FM, and WDAS-AM. In 2005, Mitchem was promoted to Director of Operations for Clear Channel’s six station cluster in Philadelphia. In 2008, she transferred to Washington, D.C. as Director of Operations for the market's nine stations and took on a duel role programming WIHT-FM Hot 99.5. Mitchem was named one of Radio Ink’s Most Influential Women in Radio in 2011 and 2012.

Weiss joined Clear Channel New York in 2004 as an Account Executive for WWPR-FM Power 105.1. In 2005, he was named Local Sales Manager for WLTW-FM 106.7 Lite FM and in 2008 was promoted to General Sales Manager. In 2010, he was named General Sales Manager WHTZ-FM Z100, WWPR-FM Power 105.1, and WAXQ-FM Q104.3. Prior to joining Clear Channel Media and Entertainment, Weiss held various sales positions within Cox Radio and Kronehit, the largest Austrian radio network.
