iHeartMedia has announced the upcoming retirement of media veteran Kristen Delaney, Area President for iHeartMedia Albany. As Area President for over a decade, Delaney has contributed to the success of the Albany Area stations, overseeing the Albany, Poughkeepsie and Sussex, New Jersey markets. Her last day will be December 31.

Delaney began her broadcasting career in 1989 as an Account Executive in Utica, New York and worked in radio sales until 1996 when she was promoted to Local Sales Manager. In 1999, she moved to Albany to join Clear Channel Radio (now iHeartMedia) as General Sales Manager and was elevated to Director of Sales in 2000, and Market Manager in 2006. Since 2011, Delaney has served as President for iHeartMedia in Albany and Poughkeepsie, New York as well as Sussex, New Jersey. In addition, Delaney serves on the board of the New York State Broadcasters Association and the Capital District Radio Association. Throughout her time at iHeartMedia, Delaney, along with her teams, helped raise millions of dollars for the Bernard & Millie Duker Children's Hospital at Albany Medical Center and WGY's Christmas Wish.

"Rarely do you see someone so inspiring and skilled at their profession as Kristen Delaney," said Hartley Adkins, President for iHeartMedia Markets Group. "After almost 23 years with iHeartMedia, she still treated every day as a new adventure and those of us in her orbit all benefited. I applaud her in taking one more adventurous step to retirement. Kristen's presence will be missed beyond words."

"It's been a great pleasure working with Kristen," said Dan Lankford, Division President for iHeartMedia Multi-Platform Group. "Albany's years of success are a direct result of the hard work and dedication Kristen has to her profession."

"It has been an incredible 32-year career in broadcasting and I'm so thankful for the last 23 years with iHeartMedia" said Delaney. "It has been such an honor to entertain and inform our communities, connect our listeners to our advertisers, and raise much-needed funds for several organizations. Over the years, I have met and worked with so many incredibly talented people and formed friendships that will last for years to come."
