Brian Paiz has been named Senior VP/Programming for iHeartMedia Columbus and Albany, GA markets.
Paiz joins iHeartMedia from IBX Media in Greenville, NC where he was the Brand Manager for WRHD-HD2. He helped launch the HD channel in November of 2017 along with 4 other broadcast properties in his past but claims WRHD-HD2 was the most challenging.
