Salem Announces Five Market Managers Doing Double Duty

Salem Media Group makes changes to its management structure in five markets as market managers currently leading other markets will now also oversee a new, additional market. The company says, “These changes provide some cost savings and will allow Salem’s most seasoned leaders to expand their impact on the performance of the company.” Terry Fahy, regional VP/GM for Los Angeles will now also oversee Oxnard; Steve Brodsky, GM for San Diego, will also manage Honolulu; Dennis Hayes, GM for Portland, will now overseeim Seattle as well; Kevin Isaacs, GM for Cleveland, will now also manage Pittsburgh; and Mark Durkin, regional VP/GM for Sacramento, will also manage Phoenix. This comes months after Carolyn Cassidy was assigned both Tampa and Columbus and John Gallagher began leading Chicago and Little Rock. Salem adds, “In some cases, the former GM will stay on in a sales/sales management role.” Company CEO David Santrella comments, “These changes were made to allow Salem to continue to innovate and invest in our business and to allow the very best leaders to oversee our radio stations.” Salem is also combining the sales efforts of Salem Media Reps and the Salem Web Network with the combined sales team reporting to Mike Reed and Mike DeAmicis at Salem Media Reps. Company COO David Evans adds, “This unified sales team will now have easier access to all digital assets within our company to more fully grow into a ‘One-World’ company that offers ministries, advertisers, and our audiences’ multiple platforms with which to consume content and reach communities.”
