iHeartMedia has announced that Russell Robertson has been named Senior Vice President of Sales for Tampa Bay, effective immediately. Robertson will be responsible for leading a team of talented sales managers and professionals to provide advertising and marketing partners with first-in-class assets designed to help them achieve their marketing goals. Russell will report to Chris Soechtig, Market President for iHeartMedia Tampa Bay.
“I’m thrilled to have Russell join our team”, said Soechtig. “His 10+ years of experience in iHeartMedia’s Pacific Northwest & San Diego Regions coupled with his passion for helping clients grow their business makes him the ideal choice for SVPS in Tampa Bay.”
Russell comes to Tampa from iHeartMedia Seattle, where he most recently served as the SVPS. He also served as the General Sales Manager for KOZ, KGB, KLSD, and Chargers Radio Broadcast for iHeartMedia San Diego.
“I am very thankful for the opportunity I had in Seattle and working with some amazing broadcasters.

My wife Amanda, my kids Tori and Zack and I are looking forward to settling in and making Tampa home.”
