Forty-one years in media is a long time, and Ben Reed, Cox Media Group’s VP/Market Manager for the San Antonio market, is calling it a day on December 31. Prior to his station being acquired by Cox in 1997, Reed worked for NewCity Communications as the GSM and Katz Broadcasting as an account executive. When he joined Cox as the GSM in San Antonio, he expanded his scope throughout his tenure. Today, he oversees content and sales for CMG’s San Antonio stations, including KISS 99.5, KONO 101.1 & 860, KTKX 106.7, KKYX 680 & 104.9, KCYY 100.3, and KSMG 105.3.
“Ben Reed’s career story is about the success he has had making a positive impact on the people he leads,” said Bill Hendrich, Executive VP, CMG. “In multiple roles for both NewCity and CMG, Ben has led his teams to success by helping them develop and grow to their full potential. We will all miss Ben’s positive attitude, friendly advice, and great sense of humor.”
