Charlie Morgan has been named Market Manager of Emmis New York, where he’s been serving as Interim Market Manager since January. COO Pat Walsh said, “Charlie is one of radio’s truly gifted leaders. His inspirational leadership has been a catalyst in improving our results in Indianapolis, and his deft skills are already having an impact in New York. I’m thrilled he’s decided to focus this next exciting stage of his career on ensuring Hot97, WBLS, and WLIB continue to play an important role in the lives of listeners in the tri-state area and these brands deliver on their enormous potential.”
Morgan has more than 35 years of experience in the radio industry, including VP/Market Manager at Susquehanna (now Cumulus) Radio, which includes WFMS, WJJK, and WISG. In 2007, Morgan joined the team at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, serving as President and Chief Operating Officer of Indianapolis Motor Speedway Productions. In 2009, he was lured back to radio and joined the Emmis team as SVP/Market Manager of Emmis Indianapolis, where he served until he was named Interim Market Manager in New York earlier this year. At Emmis Indianapolis, Morgan was responsible for leading a turnaround effort that resulted in Emmis becoming the market leader. Morgan will remain connected to the Indianapolis market, as new Emmis Indianapolis Market Manager Chuck Williams will report to Morgan.
