Hubbard CEO Ginny Morris has sent word that the company’s President and COO, Drew Horowitz, is retiring at the end of the year after 43 years of working in, owning, and running radio stations and companies.
Horowitz joined Hubbard Radio as part of the transformational acquisition of four Bonneville markets in 2011. Since that time, he has been instrumental in the company’s growth as it added clusters in Phoenix and Seattle, bolstered its cluster in St. Louis and, most recently, acquired its operations in West Palm Beach.
Here is what Morris said in the announcement: “Like me, I know that each of you has appreciated working with and getting to know Drew both professionally and personally. And…I absolutely know that each of us has learned a great deal from Drew and not just about radio, business, and leadership. I know that Drew has touched and helped many of us personally as well as professionally.
“Drew is a wise and generous leader and it has been an honor to be able to work alongside him for the last eight years.
“We will be celebrating Drew in the coming months and we will be in ‘business as usual’ mode until further notice.
“Please join me in sharing our heartfelt appreciation for all that Drew has done to make us the best we can be and in wishing him all good things in the future.”
