“Kim is a superb seller and a born leader,” said Steve Shaw, Westwood One President. “She will enhance the quality of our leadership team as we build the industry's foremost sales organization.
Adds Bryant, “The opportunity to get back to the west coast and to work with Steve Shaw and Westwood One again is a dream. The NY Cumulus experience—including the people I have worked with over the last few years--has been terrific; a real once-in-a lifetime opportunity. I am thrilled to continue to work for Cumulus in this different capacity and I look forward to having and building success in the West.”
