SYRACUSE -- Congratulations to Cumulus Media Syracuse Market Manager Shane Bogardus, who was among this year's "40 Under 40" honorees for the Syracuse region. The awards were presented during a special luncheon held today in downtown Syracuse.
According to his profile on LinkedIn, Bogardus started his career in the sales department of Utica NBC affiliate WKTV in 1991. He left in 2000 as the Director of Marketing and Local Sales, to take a sales position with Clear Channel in Syracuse. Bogardus stayed there for nearly 11 years before accepting a position as Director of Sales at what was then the Citadel Broadcasting cluster nearly a year ago. He was promoted to his current title this past May.
The full list of this year's "40 Under 40" honorees is posted on BizEventz.com -- but it looks like Bogardus is the only person from local media on the list.
Cumulus Media owns about 570 radio stations nationwide, including four in Syracuse: 93Q (WNTQ), 95X (WAQX), 105.9 The Big Talker (WXTL) and The Score 1260 (WSKO).
