Cara Hahn Named Z100 And WLTW APD/MD
Hahn has served as a programming coordinator and Community Affairs Coordinator at iHeartMedia New York since graduating from Seton Hall University in 2014. She also programmed Seton Hall’s Rock 89.5 WSOU South Orange NJ while in school.
At WLTW she succeeds Jill Kempton, who was promoted to Program Director of 97.1 WASH Washington DC today. WHTZ has not had an APD/MD since Mike Jagger moved to “Kiss 95.7” WKSS Hartford and “KC 101” 101.3 WKCI New Haven CT as PD in October 2016.
iHeartMedia New York today announced that Cara Hahn has been promoted to Assistant Program Director/Music Director for Z100, New York’s #1 Hit Music Station, and 106.7 Lite FM, New York’s Best Variety, effective December 11, 2017. iHeartMedia New York has a strong cross-platform presence and includes a number of iconic brands and franchises — both broadcast and digital — encompassing six stations comprised of music, talk and news formats.
As Assistant Program Director and Music Director for Z100 and 106.7 Lite FM, Hahn will be responsible for assisting with the day-to-day programming operations for both stations working closely with on-air personalities and sales to oversee the station’s on-air content, digital footprint and music programming. She will report to both Chris Conley, Program Director for 106.7 Lite FM and Mark Medina, Program Director for Z100.
Hahn joined iHeartMedia New York in 2014 where she most recently served as Programming Coordinator for the market.
“We put a priority on recognizing our high performers with opportunities to further grow and Cara is a true success story,” said Thea Mitchem, Executive Vice President of Programming, iHeartMedia’s Northeast Division. “She is smart, intuitive, strategic, and most importantly, a true music fan. We are thrilled to promote Cara to this position. There is no doubt she’ll continue to thrive in her new role and will be a force in our industry for years to come.”
“I am beyond grateful for this opportunity” said Hahn. “As a lifelong listener of Z100 and Lite FM, it’s a dream come true to work for both of these legendary stations. I’m especially excited to work more closely with two of the best programmers in radio, Chris Conley and Mark Medina. Thank you to Thea Mitchem and the entire iHeartMedia NY programming team.”
