Bob Bollinger To Step Down As Karyn Cerulli Rises To Entercom San Diego VP/Market Manager
Entercom has announced that Karyn Cerulli will rise to the SVP/Market Manager position at its San Diego cluster on January 1 as Bob Bollinger steps down to pursue other interests.
Cerulli joined Entercom San Diego in February 2016 as Director of Sales after previously serving in the same position for Cox Cable San Diego. She has also served as General Sales Manager for Citadel Media Worcester MA and Cox Radio Atlanta during her career.
Bollinger exits Entercom after holding the SVP/Market Manager position since July 2015 when Entercom acquired Lincoln Financial Media’s stations. He previously served as General Manager for Clear Channel and SVP/MM for CBS Radio in San Diego.
Entercom, a leading media and entertainment company and one of the two largest radio broadcasters in the U.S., today announced that Karyn Cerulli has been elevated to the role of Senior Vice President and Market Manager of Entercom San Diego, effective January 1. The role is in addition to her responsibilities as Director of Sales.
“Karyn is an exceptional, strategic leader who has made a mark since joining the team,” said Jeff Federman, Regional President, Entercom. “She has built a great team and delivered outstanding results as Director of Sales. We are thrilled to have her at the helm of Entercom San Diego.”
“I’m excited to take this next step in my career and would like to thank Weezie Kramer [Chief Operating Officer, Entercom], Jeff and Bob [Bolinger] for the opportunity,” said Cerulli. “I have great shoes to fill and am looking forward to leading the team to even greater success.”
Cerulli will succeed media veteran Bob Bolinger, who held the position since 2015. Bolinger will be stepping down at the end of the year to pursue other interests.
“The last four and a half years I have spent with Entercom have been among the most rewarding of my career,” said Bolinger. “I am so appreciative of Weezie for giving me the opportunity, as well as Susan Larkin [Regional President and Market Manager, Entercom New York], Jeff and everyone else at Entercom for their continuous support. I am very proud and grateful for what this amazing Entercom San Diego team has accomplished and wish them and Karyn only the very best.”
Cerulli is a seasoned executive with nearly 25 years of experience in the radio industry who joined Entercom San Diego as Director of Sales in 2016. Prior to Entercom, she held the same position at Cox Media San Diego, an advertising division of Cox Communications. Cerulli also worked as a General Sales Manager for Cox Media Group in Atlanta and began her career as an Account Executive with Citadel Broadcasting in Providence, RI.
