Infinity tunes in new exex

Viacom replaces radio heads

NEW YORK — Viacom radio division Infinity Broadcasting announced a restructuring of its regional and major market operations, including the exit of its East Coast and West Coast prexies.

In May, topper Mel Karmazin held the radio group’s ad sales team accountable for the unit’s poor showing, even amid a sector-wide slump, and vowed to make major changes.

New York senior VP/market manager Scott Herman will replace Kenny O’Keefe as head of East Coast operations. The company has yet to name a replacement for Western Region VP Clancy Woods, so Western market stations will report to Infinity prexy and chief operating officer Joel Hollander. Central region senior VP Brian Ongaro will pick up oversight of the San Francisco and Houston markets.

Hollander, formerly with Viacom-managed radio programming group Westwood One, replaced John Fullam, who was ousted last month.

Exec changes in the New York and Philadelphia markets were also made.

Infinity has 185 U.S. radio stations.
