Media Veteran Alexis Glick Joins Cumulus Board of Directors
ATLANTA, February 20, 2013 – Cumulus Media, the nation’s largest pure-play radio broadcaster with 525 stations and a network including more than 5,000 affiliated stations, announces the appointment of media industry veteran Alexis Glick to the company’s Board of Directors effective immediately.
Glick is CEO of the GENYOUth Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to nurturing children’s health and wellness. GENYOUth’s flagship program, Fuel Up to Play 60, a partnership between the National Football League and the National Dairy Council, empowers youth in more than 70,000 schools to improve nutrition and increase physical activity. Glick previously served as Vice President of Fox Business News, which she helped launch and where she anchored “Money for Breakfast” and “The Opening Bell.” Glick was also a correspondent for NBC News’s “Today Show,” where she co-anchored the third hour of the program, and was a senior trading correspondent for CNBC.
Earlier in her career, Glick was an executive at Morgan Stanley, where she made history as the youngest woman to head floor operations at the New York Stock Exchange. She has served as a senior fellow to the Kauffman Foundation, member of the Columbia College Alumni Association board of directors and strategic advisor to the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy.
“As Cumulus continues expanding our content offerings across media platforms, having Alexis on the board to offer strategic advice and collaboration will be incredibly valuable,” said Lew Dickey, Chairman and CEO of Cumulus. “Alexis brings a unique mix of media and business experience that will help Cumulus grow in ways that serve the interests of our listeners, employees and investors.”
“I am thrilled to be joining the Board of Directors of Cumulus as it continues to grow into a dynamic multi-media company. Cumulus’s ability to reach over 100 million listeners a week is a game-changer,” Glick said. “I have always believed that the business and the media worlds are inextricably linked. I am excited to bring my past experiences to this forward-thinking company.”
