Meet The New Boss
December 12, 2016

In the wake of Chris Kampmeier’s pending retirement (see story above), at iHeartMedia/Orlando, 19-year cluster veteran Rick Everett has been named to succeed Chris as both Orlando’s new programming boss, and as the new Region Vice President of Programming, overseeing 41 radio station brands across eight markets in iHM’s North Florida region. Everett most recently served as Program Director for Orlando’s WJRR and Sports/Talker 96.9 The Game. Concurrently he also served as Director of Marketing and Promotions for iHM’s O-Town stations. “With change comes opportunity,” said Linda Byrd, President, iHeartMedia/North Florida Region. “Rick has been in training for this job a long time. He is a natural, having worked side by side with me and the Orlando team for over 19 years. He is trusted and respected by everyone in our building. I’m lucky to have him on the bench and can’t wait to see how he embraces this new position.”
