As Market President, Saffer will work with the programming and sales teams for iHeartMedia Tucson’s seven radio station brands to oversee on-air and digital programming as well as create new revenue opportunities for local clients and partners. Saffer will also manage the market’s live concerts, community events and promotion initiatives. 

“I am elated to make the transition into the iHeartMedia family here in Tucson,” said Saffer. “Being raised in Tucson, the talent at these stations has always played a major role in my life. I am excited to work with those same stations to build upon their legacy and strengthen our relationship with both advertisers and the community.”

Saffer previously served as the VP/Sales for Clear Channel Outdoor Tucson. He is a Tucson native and has spent over 15 years in outdoor sales and sales leadership roles.
