iHeart Media Los Angeles cluster has hired Matthew Wilson Anderson from the San Diego cluster, so he’ll transfer effective July 1, 2017. Matt has served as SBE Chapter 36 Vice-chairman since November 2015.
Matt has served as an engineer at iHeart in San Diego since September 2014, doing everything from IT to transmitter work.
He’s also been an NFL Frequency Coordinator with the Chargers. He is expected to continue in that role in Los Angeles.
Matt said of his move, “I really loved my time in San Diego and I hope this isn’t my last time working in this market. I would like to thank John Rigg, Bill Thompson and everyone at iHeart Media that took the time to teach me. Day 1 started with ‘What do the filaments do?’ We’ve come a long way from there.”
The LA cluster includes five FM and three AM stations and is led by market Director of Engineer Doug Irwin.
Matt will be missed by his San Diego friends and colleagues.
