Audacy Vice President of News Bill Smee will depart from the radio giant to move back into consulting and project management. He became the company's VP of News in 2020, overseeing its multi-platform local news brands, including eight all News and eighteen News/Talk stations in 23 markets. Smee previously served as a strategic consultant for Entercom's news radio, podcasting and digital platforms and served on the Board of Governors for Yale Broadcasting Corporation from 2011 to 2018.

"It has been incredibly rewarding to work these last four years with so many talented and passionate people within Audacy's newsrooms and across the larger company. And I'm proud of our collective accomplishments: building out digital and podcasting capacity, integrating broadcast and digital teams within newsrooms, strengthening communication and collaboration across a network of brands" wrote Smee in a social media post.

"The challenges for media and journalism these days - and for local news in particular -- are profound, and the stakes are high. But there are new frontiers on the horizon and we can deploy innovative ways of thinking about how we do what we do," he added. "As always, I'm excited to explore those frontiers and draw on my many years of strategic and operational experience to help media brands and other organizations find a way forward."

Smee exits as Audacy announced Tuesday that the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas approved the company's plan of reorganization.
