iHeartMedia has named Brian “B” Paiz as SVP of Programming for the 11 radio stations comprising the company’s Columbus and Albany, GA markets. Paiz (left) segues from IBX Media in Greenville, NC, where he was most recently Brand Manager of Urban AC WRHD-HD2 (Fresh 97.9). The move marks a return to the iHeartMedia family for Paiz, who previously programmed Urban WXBT (100.1 The Beat)/Columbia, SC and was Director of Urban Programming for Urban WIBB and Urban AC WRBV (V101.7)/Macon, GA. Paiz began his radio career at WPEG/Charlotte.
“We’re excited to have Brian join our team as his experience and knowledge of multi-format clusters is extensive,” said Jennifer Newman, Market President for iHeartMedia’s Columbus and Albany, GA region. “Brian’s enthusiasm for the business and his proven winning track record will elevate both Columbus and Albany and grow our already successful stations.”
Paiz remarked, “We have excellent radio brands that I look forward to working with and I’d like to thank iHeartMedia for the amazing opportunity.” Paiz succeeds Derrick Greene, who left in June to become OM/PD of Radio One Urban WHHL (Hot 104.1) and Urban AC WFUN (95.5 The Lou)/St. Louis.
