Hollander Steps Down as CEO of CBS Radio

After more than two years as Chief Executive Officer of CBS Radio, Joel Hollander has stepped down from his position. Hollander joined the company in 2003 as President and Chief Operating Officer.

Hollander will be succeeded by Dan Mason, a former CBS executive.

Mason returns to CBS Radio after serving as an adviser and consultant to CBS and other domestic and international companies in the radio broadcasting industry for the past five years. Mason was also President of CBS Radio from 1995 to 2002.

Hollander's departure has been expected, although the timing is accelerated. He told CBS brass in February that he planned to leave the company when his contract expires at the end of the year.

"We want to thank Joel for all his years of service to our company, and wish him the best in his future endeavors," said Leslie Moonves, President and Chief Executive Officer of CBS.
