Radio One vet Josh Rahmani has been upped to senior vice president, national and network sales for Radio One and Reach Media, which consolidated their urban programming over six years ago.
The new title enlarges Rahmani’s responsibilities for sales, partnerships and sponsorships for Radio One’s 59 stations and Reach Media’s syndicated-network programs, which include 500 affiliates, digital and social media and live events.
His charge remains: utilizing cross-platform and integrated marketing efforts to generate revenue. He is also tasked with growing the sales team.
Given Rahmai’s success at corporate sales-partnerships, Radio One-Reach CEO David Kantor stated he earned his expanded portfolio by “delivering leadership throughout the company and maintaining great relationships with our partners in advertising and sponsorship.”
In 2013, Rahmani was tapped as director, ad sales-New York for Reach Media. Three years later, he was promoted to vice president, national sales for Radio One.
Urban One, parent of Radio One, owns or operates 59 broadcast stations in 15 urban U.S. markets. Via its controlling interest in Reach Media, it syndicates various shows, including “The Tom Joyner Morning Show” and “The DL Hughley Show.”
It also owns iOneDigital that utilizes web sites, social media and news to serve the African-American community.
Reach Media, Inc. was founded in 2003 by Tom Joyner and David Kantor.
