Aloha, A. Lohman
Andy Lohman has been Area President for the media conglomerate’s ten Alaska stations for decades, since the company was known as Clear Channel. Last week, he was named Area President for Honolulu, effective immediately, while maintaining his Alaska duties.
iHeartMedia is the leading media outlet in the Honolulu market, operating four FM radio stations, two HD2 subchannels, and two AM stations, plus live events and digital platforms, including mobile, social, and the iHeartRadio podcasting and live streaming service.
“I’m looking forward to working with Market President Scott Hogle and his fantastic iHeart Hawaii team,” Lohman says. “Hawaii has its own unique culture, and iHeart Hawaii is an integral part of the island lifestyle. The Alaska/Hawaii Area comprises not only the two states separate from the Lower 48 but also two of the most beautiful places to live in America. We will be strong partners.”
Lohman is in charge of six stations in Anchorage—KASH, KBFX, KENI, KGOT, KTZN, and KYMG—and four sister stations in Fairbanks: KAKQ, KFBX, KIAK, and KKED.
“Andy has done a great job leading his Alaskan markets, and I’m excited to see how our Alaska and Hawaii markets will work together because of their shared unique characteristics,” says Dan Lankford, division president for iHeartMedia Markets Group. “I’m sure Andy and Honolulu Market President Scott Hogle will work closely together to elevate both areas.”
iHeartMedia is the leading audio media company in America, with broadcast radio assets alone reaching more US consumers than any other media outlet; twice the reach of the next largest broadcast radio company; and over four times the ad-enabled reach of the largest digital only audio service. iHeartMedia is the largest podcast publisher according to Podtrac, with more downloads than Amazon’s Wondery and National Public Radio, the next two podcast publishers, combined.
