Julie Kahn was recently promoted to Senior Vice President for New
England for Entercom Communications. Previously, Julie was Vice President and
New England Market Manager where she managed seven stations for Entercom
including sports radio WEEI, WAAF-FM, Mike 93.7FM, and talk radio WRKO. WEEI
carries the Boston Red Sox and Boston Celtics games as well as exclusive New
England Patriots' programming. She also presides over Entercom's New
England-wide syndication of WEEI and Howie Carr- the only such syndication of
regional content in American radio.
Julie received her BA from the University of Michigan in English Literature
and a JD/MBA from Northwestern University. But instead of practicing law, Julie
began a career in radio sales at Chicago's WGN- the radio home of the Cubs and
the Bears. Julie moved to San Francisco in 1984 where she became the General
Manager of the legendary KSAN, which was the #1 biller in America for three
years during her tenure. In 1994 Julie moved over to Susquehanna radio cluster
where she became Vice President and Director of Sales. While there, in 1999,
she was recognized by Radio Ink Magazine as the Vice President/Director of
Sales of the Year. Julie's San Francisco stations covered the Oakland Raiders,
the Oakland A's, the Golden State Warriors, the San Jose Sharks, and the SF
49ers and Giants.
In 2000, Julie moved to Boston to become Vice President/ General Manager of
Entercom Boston's FM stations. In early 2004 she was given responsibility for
all of Entercom's Boston properties, including WEEI, making her one the
country's only female general managers in sports radio. In her first year, she
led the station to unprecedented success. WEEI received the "Station of the
Year Award" at the Sports Radio Awards and was nominated for a National
Association of Broadcasters Marconi Award for "Major Market Station of the
Year". Also in that year, newly acquired 103.7FM in Providence RI began
broadcasting WEEI content. In 2006, WEEI won two Marconi awards for "Large
Market Station of the Year" and for "Sports Station of the Year". Also in 2006,
WVEI-FM Springfield was added to her responsibilities as Entercom expanded
WEEI's footprint to western Massachusetts and Julie assumed her current role as
VP/New England Market Manager. In 2007, building off of the success of
Providence and Springfield, Julie presided over a first-of-its-kind expansion
of regional content as both WEEI and Howie Carr became syndicated across 11
stations in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Cape Cod. In 2008, improvements
to WEEI's website, including streaming audio, video and other original content
expanded the reach of the WEEI brand far beyond New England. In 2011, Radio Ink
Magazine named WEEI.com as the "Best Major Market Radio Station Website".
Julie has received recognition both from within the industry and
without. She is regularly included on Radio Ink Magazine's list of the "Best
Managers in Radio" and the "50 Most Influential Women in Radio". She was
featured in Boston magazine in 2006 as one of "100 People Who Run This Town"
and again in 2011 as one of "The 50 Most Powerful Women in Boston". She has
been the recipient of the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce's 2009 Pinnacle
Award for women who have achieved excellence in private sector management. She
was featured on the cover of the July/August issue of Talkers magazine.
In 2010 she was a panelist at the 19th Annual Dynamic Women in
Business Conference at Harvard Business School. In 2011 she was a panelist at
the Boston Business Journal's Advancing Women 2011 and the keynote speaker for
the sports radio segment of Talkers magazine's 2011 New Media national
She currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Positive
Coaching Alliance, is Communication Chair for the Massachusetts Women's Forum,
is a Trustee and Board Member of Suffolk University, and is a Board Member of
the Boston Sports Museum as well as serving on the Boston Board of Directors
for the National Sports Management Network. Julie has served on the event
committees for the American Heart Association's "Heart Ball", the American
Stroke Association's "Tedy Bruschi Night of Inspiration Benefit" and the
MSPCA's "Together Against Abuse Dinner". With her husband Dan Scully, she
co-chaired the MSPCA's Animal Tales 2008 annual fundraiser. In 2010 for her
effort on behalf of each organization, she was honored by Operation A.B.L.E.
with its Starfish Thrower award and by the Franciscan Hospital for Children
with its Community Leadership Award.
Julie completed the Harvard Business School Executive Education
leadership program as well as earning a certificate in Innovation and Value
Creation from MIT's Sloane School of Management.
During Julie's time
at Entercom, their New England market stations have donated over 20 million
dollars in airtime and digital assets. In addition, they have helped raise more
than 25 million dollars for various organizations like the Dana Farber Jimmy
Fund, the Boomer Esiason Foundation, the Greater Boston Food Bank, Curt's Pitch
for ALS, the Franciscan Hospital for Children, and many others.
