#097: Lori Lewis

Lori Lewis has been a force of radio over 25 years. First, on-air ─ with the nationally syndicated "Bubba the Love Sponge" show, then as decorated Program Director in Baltimore. 

In a move to help radio grow digitally and socially, Lori left day to day programming in 2008 to become Director of Digital and Social Strategies for Duke Wright’s Midwest Communications. Next, Jacobs Media Strategies   tapped Lori to help their clients’ digital and social needs. Lori became Vice President, Social Media, for Cumulus Media and Westwood One. Then last fall, she joined Modern Luxury win the newly created position of VP of Social Media. The move reunites Lori with former Cumulus CEO Lew Dickey, who first hired her at Cumulus in the same capacity in 2015. 

In her spare time, she also authors the Merge column for All Access and serves as Board Chairperson for the nonprofit Conclave in Minneapolis.

(We're glad she could squeeze us in for this compelling 'must-hear' episode!)
