CBS Radio: All Shook Up

CBS Radio president and CEO Dan Mason announced a major restructuring of executive management at the company on Wednesday. Some regional management positions were eliminated; Mason will now have direct oversight of stations in 10 major markets. Mason is assuming direct control of CBS Radio stations in Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.

Oversight of the rest of the company's stations will be handled by Scott Herman, who has been named executive vice president for operations. He is moving to the post from his previous role as executive vice president of the Eastern region.

CBS also announced the appointment of Michael Weiss as president of sales--replacing Michael Kincaid, who recently resigned for personal reasons. Weiss previously served as president of sales for CBS at Interep. Weiss worked at Interep in various positions for 23 years.

Mason explained the changes: "This reorganization is designed to implement a streamlined chain of command moving our division toward a more fully responsive and profitable position. Our ratings have improved, and a new head of sales will help us better monetize our recent success."
