L & L Broadcasting is bringing in Mike Hartel as its new SVP/Market Manager for the company's Columbia, South Carolina, cluster. Hartel started his radio career with Katz Radio Group in New York and then went on to work with Clear Channel in Raleigh, North Carolina, for six years. He joined Curtis Media Group in 2002, where he recently was VP/GM of WBBB.

Bob Proffitt, CEO of L & L Broadcasting, stated, We had the huge benefit of having Bill McElveen step up as not only an in-market radio veteran, but to help us in the recruitment process to get the very best fit and talent to manage Columbia. Mike Hartel is a great fit for our Columbia cluster with his excellent track record, interactive focus, and competitive nature a perfect addition with our growing company.

Hartel said, I love what Larry and Bob are creating, and Im thrilled to be a part of their team. There is no place I would rather be than with a company that is hyper-focused on using live and local radio to serve our community, our clients, and our employees."
