Andre J. Fernandez Named President Of CBS Radio Andre J. Fernandez has been named President of CBS Radio. The announcement was made by Leslie Moonves, President and CEO of CBS Corporation, to whom Fernandez will report. He begins next week and will be based in New York.
In this role, Fernandez will oversee the direction and management of the division, which includes 117 stations in 26 major markets as well as a growing collection of digital assets. He was most recently President and Chief Operating Officer of Journal Communications, where he was responsible for the company’s broadcasting and publishing assets.
Fernandez succeeds Dan Mason, who announced his retirement after 17 years with the Company, during which he led CBS Radio for a total of 15 years.
"Dan is a legendary leader in the radio business," said Moonves. "His passion for the business is well-known, and is a major reason why he’s been able to turn around so many of our major market stations. Above all, he’s been a good friend and a superb colleague. We will miss him dearly and thank him very much."
Previously, Fernandez served in several executive positions at Journal Communications. Named President in 2012 and Chief Operating Officer in 2014, Fernandez was responsible for operational oversight of Journal’s broadcast and publishing segments, as well as a number of corporate functions. He also served as the company’s Chief Financial Officer from 2008 through 2014.
