“Steve is the perfect leader for iHeartMedia New Orleans,” said Hudson. “With him at the helm, I have no doubt that our already talented New Orleans team and brands will grow to new heights.”

“I’ve had the good fortune of working with both Steve and Michael in the past,” said Eddie Martiny, President for iHeartMedia’s Houston Region, which includes the New Orleans and Baton Rouge markets. “I trust them both implicitly and know our New Orleans market is in great hands.”

McNair is a 25-year media veteran who most recently served as Regional Sales Manager at Titan Broadcasting’s KUBE-TV in Houston.
