Bob Philips assumes this newly created leadership position, effective immediately. Philips will be responsible for leading all aspects of revenue generation for the company at the corporate, regional, and local levels. He will be based in New York and report to CBS Radio’s president, Andre Fernandez. Philips has served as CBS Radio’s senior vice president of sales since late 2015 and is on the RAB Advisory Board.
“Bob’s extensive radio and sales experience make him ideal to accelerate our efforts as we enter a new phase of the business,” said Fernandez. “His deep understanding of corporate, customer, category, and channel strategies will be instrumental in generating new revenue opportunities and ensuring our ability to deliver top-tier financial results.”
“It’s an exciting time for the radio industry,” added Philips. “We’ve never had more assets at our disposal to meet our clients’ needs and extend their iconic brands – our radio stations, digital assets, and events are only the tip of the iceberg.”
