His keen operational experience combined with his strong hand of leadership provide a perfect combination to build a better future for the broadcast division."
Power commented, "My years with Salem have been the most rewarding of my career so far. Our dual focus on doing well while doing good provides a culture unique in media. I’m grateful for the leadership of our founders Edward Atsinger and Stuart Epperson, and grateful to Dave Santrella and David Evans for the opportunity to play this role as our company continues to grow as a multimedia platform."

Santrella said, "Linnae has been my go-to person every time we’ve had an opportunity to sell multiple marketing elements from several divisions to new clients. Her work in our industry on Salem’s behalf with many clients made this an easy decision for me. Linnae brings out the very best from those she works with, and I look forward to seeing her touch across the entire division."
Regional Vice President and Chicago General Manager Jeff Reisman advances to Senior Vice President, Operations, overseeing the radio markets on the eastern side of the country.
