Clear Channel Names Chuck Poet VP/GM in Parksburg/Marietta

Clear Channel Radio Regional VP Tom Thon today named Chuck Poet as the general manager of the Parkersburg/Marietta cluster. Poet moves eastward from the Findlay/Tiffin, Ohio market where he’s been GM since 1998. Clear Channel Radio’s Parkersburg/Marietta group includes a six-station cluster between the two cities.

Commented Thon: “I’m delighted that we’re able to promote from within and get a quality manager like Chuck for Clear Channel Radio’s Mid Ohio Valley. Chuck has demonstrated outstanding leadership, managerial and broadcast cash flow growth skills during his time in Findlay/Tiffin. His uncanny ability to be in two places at one time (after all, he’s covered ‘Findlay/Tiffin’ for years) made him the obvious choice to continue his magical ways for ‘Parkersburg/Marietta’!”

Poet, who started his broadcast career over two decades ago, has criss-crossed the northern tier of the Midwest serving as GM or GSM in Northwest Michigan, Duluth, Green Bay, Quad Cities, and Dayton before landing in Findlay/Tiffin four years ago. Says Poet, “I’m very excited about the new challenge in Parkersburg/Marietta. Clear Channel has put together a great cluster of signals in the market. I’m looking forward to working with the staff to continue to grow the programming, ratings, and revenue. Plus, I’ve set a new southern border-Parkersburg will be the warmest place I’ve worked in twenty years!”

Poet’s new responsibilities are effective January 14th. Word on his replacement in the Findlay/Tiffin market is expected shortly.
