Hyannis -December 14, 2020- CCB Media, a local multi-media company which owns and operates WQRC, 99.9 The Q, WOCN, Ocean 104.7, WKPE, Cape Country 104, WFCC, Cape Classical 107.5 and CapeCod.com, announced a senior leadership promotion today.
Gregory Bone, Owner, and head of the media group for over 40 years, announced the promotion of Brian Barth to General Manager, effective January 1st, 2021. Currently the Head of Digital Strategy and a 7-year veteran of the company, Barth was instrumental in shaping the CapeCod.com news and lifestyle brand, increasing digital advertising revenues, co-leading the News Center, and advocating new technologies.
“In a year when good news is hard to come by, I am pleased to announce Brian’s well-earned promotion,” said Bone. “He will oversee daily operations of the business. It was an easy decision to promote from within, as our CCB Media team has been working closely with our best General Manager candidate during this difficult year.”
Prior to CCB Media, Brian worked in the healthcare space for over a decade. A “Washashore” from the Chicagoland area originally, Brian lives with his wife (a Cape Cod native) and two sons in Centerville. During the summer, you can usually find him on Lake Wequaquet boating with his sons, coaching little league, or volunteering at the MSPCA.
“I’m grateful for Greg’s confidence in me and am excited to leverage my digital experience to progress the company forward into new technologies and expanded digital offerings, said Barth. “Our goal has always been to super serve our clients in both radio and digital, and there is huge growth potential to use both forms of media as the audio industry transforms.”
“Brian is the right person for the job; he has meaningful radio, news, and digital experience and is an outstanding people leader,” Bone noted. “I will work with him as he transitions to his new role, on long term strategic direction and development going forward, and my door will always be open to our clients, staff, and community. I am excited for what lies ahead for CCB Media.”
