Vidler Moves To Entercom


Gene Vidler joins Entercom’s New Orleans cluster as DOS to work for Chris Wegman. Vidler takes the Entercom job after working as VP of Sales for Tyler Media’s nine-station cluster. Vidler has held sales positions in Nebraska, Arkansas, and Oklahoma. He started his radio sales career in Shreveport with Great Empire Broadcasting’s KWKH in 1993. In 2000, he joined Cox in Oklahoma as an AE, then GSM. He was later elevated to Market Manager, a role he held until 2015.

“We are very happy to welcome Gene to the Entercom New Orleans team,” said Chris Wegmann, Entercom’s Senior Vice President and Market Manager. “His experience and success in radio make him a great fit for our stations and the Saints Network. In essence, he is returning to where he spent his formative years in New Orleans.”

Entercom’s New Orleans cluster includes B97 (WEZB-FM), BAYOU 95.7 (WKBU-FM), HOT 103.7 (WWWL-AM), MAGIC 101.9 (WLMG-FM), and WWL AM-FM.

“This is a dream job for me: working for radio stations that I grew up listening to as a kid and getting to work with the greatest football brands in the world,” said Gene Vidler. “I’m really excited to be a part of the Entercom team and look forward to getting to work with some of the best in the business.”
