Key Networks to Manage Ad Sales/Ops for Clear Media Network


Key Networks has entered into an exclusive partnership agreement with Clear Media Network to manage all network advertising sales and network advertiser inventory operations for the new 24/7 music radio network. The Dallas-based Clear Media Network was launched on September 1, 2020, and offers AC, Country and Adult R&B formats that are uniquely positioned, formatted and dynamically programmed for the unique needs of the independent radio operator.

Mark McCray, President of Programming and Operations, Clear Media Network, was most recently VP/Programming and Operations for Radio One/Dallas and Reach Media, and has network programming experience at ABC Radio Networks and the Texas State Network. Gary Spurgeon, COO, Clear Media Network, is a 42-year broadcasting veteran who was most recently SVP at Salem Media and prior to that, was VP/GM for Radio One/Houston.

Rich Baum, EVP, Ad Sales, Key Networks, said, "Mark McCray and Gary Spurgeon have a tremendously successful track record in radio management at both the local and network levels and their Clear Media Network's 24/7 music products have already been cleared in two Top 20 markets. That speaks volumes to their credibility and the value of their network product to local stations nationwide. Key Networks is thrilled to partner with them as they build out their network going forward."

"We are excited about having Rich Baum and the team at Key Networks represent our new music network," said Gary Spurgeon, COO of Clear Media Network. "This partnership will only enhance our market position and affiliate opportunities."
