Matteo To Vegas

iHeartMedia Omaha Region SVP/Programming Tony Matteo has been named to the same post for the company's Central California/Nevada region, which includes KWNR/Las Vegas. Matteo fills the void created by last month's departure of JoJo Turnbeaugh, who is now in a similar role for iHeartMedia/Denver (Breaking News 5/10).

 “Las Vegas has been on a roll and we’re confident Tony will continue to build the success of brands like Sunny and The Bull, while growing The Mountain and Real to new levels of success,” says EVPP/West Division Steve Geofferies. "His experience and steady approach will be a true asset ...."

"I've been fortunate to be a part of a group of incredibly talented programmers, on-air talent and managers in the Wichita Market and Omaha Region and together we’ve accomplished much," Matteo says. "The outstanding brands built by the iHM Central California / Nevada team have a ton of momentum. I'll be proud to join and help continue the region's winning streak."
