Veteran Radio Executive Maire Mason Joins Cumulus New York

Cumulus has yet to hire an air staff at the brand new NASH FM. But management is making strides toward the future.

Maire Mason has been named general sales manager of Cumulus New York. The former general manager of Oldies giant WCBS-FM, Mason has more than 20 years in industry with sales management experience. Most recently, she headed the sales department at Merlin Media’s now defunct FM News.

But there were definitely good times for Mason.

She was part of a CBS Radio team that won six Marconi Awards, and was named twice to the Radio Ink list of Most Influential Women in Radio.

The Cumulus New York stations are 77 WABC, WPLJ, and upstart NASH FM 94.7 Country format.

“I am enormously excited about building the NASH sales team and developing long-lasting relationships with our advertising partners,” Mason said in a statement. “The country format exudes fun, listener involvement, and total backing by their artist, how can you not get involved?”
