Radio network firm Westwood One has hired Gary Krantz, most recently the president of Air America Radio, as its chief digital media officer, a newly created position, the company said Monday. The appointment highlights "the immediate shift of Westwood One's digital-media portfolio from the developmental stage to execution," said president and CEO Peter Kosann, to whom Krantz will report. Kosann was made CEO in January and said that since then he has focused on digitizing the Westwood One content and securing Internet rights to that content. The company is a dominant provider of syndicated radio content, including NFL and March Madness basketball games and talk shows from Bill O'Reilly, Jim Cramer, Don Imus and Tom Leykis.
