England comes to Chicago from Hubbard’s Phoenix cluster where he was Director of Sales. He previously served as Director of Sales and later Market Manager for iHeartMedia’s Phoenix cluster from 2003-2012. He fills the vacancy created by John Gallagher’s exit in September.
Hubbard Radio President/COO Drew Horowitz today announced that Jeff England was named VP/Market Manager for Hubbard Radio-Chicago. Hubbard Radio operates four radio stations in Chicago: WTMX (101.9 FM The Mix), WDRV/WWDV (99.7/96.9 FM The Drive) and WSHE (100.3 FM).
Commented Horowitz, “We are thrilled to have someone with Jeff’s experience and competitive spirit assuming the leadership mantle in our largest market. What makes our choice of Jeff even more gratifying is we were able to promote from within which is always our preference.”
England is a 28 year veteran of radio and was most recently the VP/Director of Sales for Hubbard Radio in Phoenix. Prior to joining Hubbard, England was the President/Market Manager and DOS in Phoenix for Clear Channel. His career started in Atlanta where he worked for Shamrock Broadcasting, Jacor Broadcasting, and Clear Channel in sales and sales management roles.
“I am beyond thrilled with this opportunity,” commented England. “We have legacy brands and great people at Hubbard Chicago. I look forward to working with our team to grow our audiences, our clients’ businesses, and serve our community. I will also be shopping for a new winter wardrobe!”
