A longtime eastern Ontario radio executive is moving up the broadcasting ranks.

Torres Media Group has promoted Tim Wieczorek to executive vice-president of its radio operations, the organization said this week.

A 30-year veteran of the industry, Wieczorek most recently served as director of operations at Ottawa radio station Rebel 101.7. The Algonquin College advertising graduate has had stints in sales and senior management at various radio stations and other media organizations in Ottawa, Belleville, Cornwall and Kingston.

According to a news release, Wieczorek was “instrumental” in driving double-digit sales growth at Rebel 101.7, which he joined in December 2016 after two years as a top executive at Kingston-based web design and digital marketing agency Appmedia Group.

Torres Media Group is an independent broadcaster that operates four FM radio stations, including Rebel 101.7, as well as various digital properties and SkyWords Media, a radio programming syndicator.
