Cumulus Media ups Chris Hoffman to Vice President of Adult Contemporary and its 27 AC-formatted stations. He'll continue as Operations Manager for KUBL-FM, KBEE-FM and KKAT-AM in Salt Lake City. Hoffman is a 35-year radio veteran, programming stations in the AC, Classic Rock, Classic Hits and News/Talk formats.

Hoffman started his career while still in high school, at the University of Colorado's radio station. As a teenager he worked his way up at Shamrock Broadcasting's KXKL FM (Kool 105) in Denver, rising to Program Director in 1996. He went on to program KCMO-FM in Kansas City and took on Operations Manager and Program Director roles for Cumulus at KCMO-AM and KCFX-FM. After two years in San Francisco programming KUZX and KUFX, Hoffman moved to Salt Lake City as OM, where he also served as Program Director and midday host.

Cumulus Media Senior VP/Programming Operations John Dimick said, "Having the depth to recruit from within and promote someone with Chris' abilities is another example of our commitment to having the best and brightest in Cumulus Media. This is well deserved recognition, and we are delighted to have Chris as part of the Audience and Content leadership team."

Hoffman added, "I couldn't be more thrilled to lead our AC team at Cumulus and work with our PDs to grow our legendary group of stations. A huge thank you to EVP Brian Philips and our VPs of Programming, John Dimick, Doug Hamand and Greg Frey for this amazing opportunity. I can't wait to get started."
