It appears things are starting to change even before the Entercom/CBS deal closes. Steve DiNardo who was the Vice-President/Market Manager for the Entercom San Francisco cluster is no longer with the company. At the time of his promotion in February of 2014, the company said, “After a nationwide search, the best choice was right in front of us.” DiNardo had been with Entercom since 2012, first as GSM of KOIT, rising to VP of Sales for the cluster. Prior to joining Entercom, DiNardo worked for CBS Radio as a VP/GM for 15 years.
As part of the Entercom/CBS merger, three Entercom stations in San Francisco are being sold off. They are: KBLX-FM (UrbanAC), KOIT-FM(AC) and KUFX-FM (Classic Rock).
CBS Radio owns KLLC-FM (Hot AC), KMVQ-FM (Top 40), KCBS-AM (News), KITS (Alternative), and KFRC-FM (News). KMVQ-FM is also being sold as part of the merger in order for Entercom to get under the local ownership rules.
As of now Doug Harvil is the Vice President, General Manager of the CBS Radio cluster. It’s expected this cluster will fall under the responsibility of former Cox Media Group Vice President Susan Larkin. Entercom hired Larkin away from CMG back in July as a Regional Vice President but did not announce her area of responsibility.
