Tony Coles Named Senior VP at Clear Channel

Excerpt from an article by Robert Feder in Time Out Chicago,
February 28, 2013.

The man who's been calling the shots on the air and behind the scenes at Clear Channel's Chicago radio stations since 2008 is climbing the corporate ladder.

Tony Coles has been named senior vice president of programming for the west region of Clear Channel Media and Entertainment. While still based in Chicago, he will be leading "programming strategy initiatives" for the company's west regional markets, as of March 15.

Coles, 44, most recently has been vice president of programming and operations for Clear Channel Chicago and national brand manager for hot adult-contemporary stations.

Coles, who attended Ohio University and graduated from Marylhurst University with a BA in Communication, began as an on-air personality in Columbus, Ohio, and shifted to management in 1991. He held a variety of programming positions in New York, Los Angeles and Seattle before he was named regional vice president of programming for Clear Channel, based in Portland, Oregon, in 2004. In August 2008, he succeeded Darren Davis as programming and operations chief in Chicago.
