Katz Media Group has appointed Christine Travaglini to President of Katz Radio Group. She succeeds Mark Gray who was promoted to CEO of Katz Media Group in March 2017. Travaglini will oversee all of the radio sales company’s operations nationwide and will report to Gray. Radio Ink has named Travaglini one of the “Most Influential Women in Radio” since 2005.
Travaglini has served as President of Christal Radio, a division within Katz, since 2008. She was the first person to rise from an assistant to president within the organization. In 2013, she was also named President of Katz Partnerships, the business development team focused on deepening relationships with agencies and developing innovative campaigns for today’s big brands.
Gray said, “Christine is an incredible leader that not only has the respect of our team and senior leadership, but has also been a trusted partner for Katz’s clients for many years. Her dedication and wealth of experience with the radio and advertising industry, as well as her strong reputation for inspiring innovation and building winning teams, will further Katz’s continued growth and advocacy efforts for radio, our partners, and advertisers.”
Travaglini added, “Katz is a longtime leader in the media industry, known for its accomplished team of senior leaders and winning sales teams that reflect the strength the organization and its unparalleled national reach. I’m both honored and excited to take on this role, and I look forward to continuing to drive revenue and advocacy for our broadcast partners as our team continues to build on radio’s success with major advertisers and agencies nationwide.”
