Townsquare Media has promoted Brian Sines to Market President/Chief Revenue Officer for its Texarkana AR/TX stations.
Sines comes to Texarkana from Cedar Rapids IA where he has served as Director of Sales for the past five years. Sines has previously held General Manager positions for Coon Valley Radio and Clear Channel Burlington IA. He’s also been General Sales Manager for Clear Channel in Des Moines and Madison and worked for Learfield Sports and AutoTrader.com.
Townsquare Media Inc. announced today that Brian Sines has been promoted to Market President and Chief Revenue Officer for its Texarkana cluster. Mr. Sines will lead the local media team in Texarkana, which includes market leader KKYR-FM, along with KPWW-FM, KYGL-FM, KMJI-FM and KOSI-AM. He will report to Townsquare Senior Vice President Todd Lawley.
“I have worked with Brian over the past five years and watched him build Cedar Rapids into one of the top performing clusters at Townsquare,” said Todd Lawley. “In fact, the Cedar Rapids market hasn’t missed a budget in three years and holds a dominant position with both their broadcast and digital performance. I’m confident that Brian will quickly build upon the high performing team that serves the community, our listeners and the clients of Texarkana. It is extremely rewarding to again have the ability to promote from within the Company, which is a direct reflection to the level of talent we have at Townsquare.”
“I am excited to join the team in Texarkana, “said Brian Sines. “Townsquare is fortunate to have such a long tenured team in place that truly cares about our clients, our listeners and super serves the community. I look forward to working with the number one media team in the market and starting a budget busting streak of our own.”
Townsquare COO – Local Media, Erik Hellum added, “Brian’s performance, combined with his passion for the industry and commitment to winning, makes him the right candidate to lead our Texarkana market. Texarkana had been handled by a Market President in another market, but given our “Local First” focus we wanted to make sure that our talented team in Texarkana had a leader dedicated to helping them win in their market.”
Prior to joining Townsquare, Mr. Sines held senior management positions at Clear Channel Radio in the Midwest and worked with University of Iowa sports properties through Learfield Sports.
