|RADIO ONLINE | Wednesday, January 30, 2019|
Cumulus Media elevates veteran Detroit broadcaster Steve Finateri to VP/Market Manager of its four-station group in Detroit. Finateri, a 30-year Detroit radio pro, rises from his previous post as Director of Sales for WJR, a position he has held since 2011. He joined Cumulus in 2006 as National Sales Manager for WJR, and became Local Sales Manager for WJR in 2008. He began his career in talk radio as a Retail Account Manager in 1986 for Fritz Broadcasting's WXYT, and then moved to Clear Channel/iHeartMedia's WNIC as Senior Account Manager in 1995 and on to Local Sales Manager for CBS Radio's WVMV in 2002.
Cumulus Media Executive VP/Operations Dave Milner said, "Steve's performance and success leading WJR's sales team, along with his deep understanding of the Detroit media and advertising market made him the obvious choice to run our Cumulus cluster in the Motor City."
Finateri added, "It's a privilege and an honor to represent such an elite team of media professionals. Our Cumulus Detroit radio stations reach over 1.6 million listeners weekly, delivering over 42% of Metro Detroit's total population, even more when you include WJR's booming regional signal that adds significant listenership throughout Michigan."
