Cumulus Media has appointed Chris Monk as Regional Vice President for the company’s nine radio stations in Saginaw and Flint. In his new position, Monk will also serve as Market Manager in Saginaw and oversee the Flint stations.
It’s a homecoming of sorts for Monk, as he was previously Market Manager for the Flint stations from 2007-2012 when they were owned by Citadel Broadcasting. Monk returns to Michigan from Ft. Wayne, where he was Vice-President and Market Manager for Adams Radio Group.
Monk was also Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Alliance 180, LLC, in Boyne City as well as Vice President and General Manager for Northern Star Broadcasting in Traverse City. He holds a B.A. in Radio/TV Management from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, IL, and an M.A. in Organizational Management from Spring Arbor University in Spring Arbor/Gaylord, MI.
Monk served on the MAB Foundation Board of Directors from 2003-2012, serving as Chairman in 2010-2011.
