Cumulus Media announces that it has appointed 30-year radio broadcasting executive Eric Mastel as Vice President/Market Manager for Cumulus Charleston, SC. Mastel moves to Charleston from Savannah, GA, where he was Vice President/Market Manager for Cumulus Savannah for the past eight years. He succeeds Sherry Dollar in the position, who passed away in July. Prior to joining Cumulus in 2011, Mastel was President of Max Media for 12 years and was also Vice President/Market Manager for Entercom Communications in Virginia Beach, VA.
Bob Walker, Executive Vice President, Cumulus Media, said: “We are thrilled that Eric will be moving to Charleston to lead our team and our great brands. He is an accomplished leader and will compliment the strong team in Charleston nicely.”
Mastel said: “I would like to thank Mary Berner and Bob Walker for affording me this fantastic opportunity. There is a great team in place that knows nothing but success in Charleston. We had a great 8-year run at Cumulus Savannah, achieving many milestones. While I am saddened to be leaving the team, which is more like family, I know that Gigi South is the right person to help that business continue to surpass its goals and raise their ceilings. I am looking forward to this exciting new chapter in my career.”
