Former CBS Radio San Francisco SVP/Market Manager Doug Harvill has joined Cumulus Media San Francisco in the same position.
Harvill oversaw the CBS Radio San Francisco cluster from 2005 until the closing of its sale to Entercom last November. He also spent nine years as Market Manager of CBS Radio Sacramento from 1996 through 2005. Prior to that he was Vice President and National Program Director for EZ Communications.
Harvill succeeds Justin Wittmayer, who has overseen the Cumulus San Francisco cluster since September 2014.
Cumulus Media announces that it has appointed San Francisco media executive Doug Harvill as Vice President/Market Manager for Cumulus Media-San Francisco. Harvill joins Cumulus after running CBS Radio-San Francisco, where he was Senior Vice President and Market Manager for the past 12 years. Prior to that, Harvill was Senior Vice President and Market Manager for CBS Radio-Sacramento, CA, for almost nine years. Harvill has also served the community as Co-Founder, President and Executive Director of the National First Responders Fund, a national non-profit organization aiding first responders who suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress.
Dave Milner, Executive Vice President, Operations, Cumulus Media, said: “I have always admired Doug’s ability to drive consistent ratings and revenue growth in the competitive San Francisco market. He is a smart and strategic leader that surrounds himself with talented individuals. This, along with his intimate knowledge of the market landscape made him the perfect choice to lead Cumulus San Francisco.”
Harvill said: “Over the past twelve years I’ve competed against the Cumulus San Francisco properties and am acutely aware of both the significant strengths and growth opportunities for these legendary stations. Think about these call letters: KNBR, KFOG, KGO, KSAN, KSFO and KTCT. These are iconic radio brands with passionate listeners. I am excited to work with the people who create these powerful community-centered stations.”
