Stephens Media Group has promoted National PD, Bob Thornton to SVP/Programming & Technology, effective immediately. He’ll oversee programming and lead the company’s efforts in expanding the stations’ brands in current and emerging technologies.
“BOB’s programming instincts and ability to integrate compelling content with technology is a model for our industry,” SMG owner David Stephens said. “His over 20 years of investment in our company is one of the driving forces behind our growth and success.”
Thornton’s first order of business is to hire KXOJ Tulsa’s first PD in 20 years, so he can focus on his new role.
