Clear Channel has upped Clay Hunnicutt to the post of EVP/GM of National Programming Platforms; he'll report to President of National Programming Platforms Tom Poleman in the firm's New York offices.

In the new post, Hunnicutt will join Poleman in overseeing on-air and digital content, working with programming heads to emphasize the connection between CC's 850 loal stations and national assets like iHeartRadio's Music Festival, Ultimate Pool Party, Country Festival and Jingle Ball Tour; he'll also manage a team of programmers focused on sales integration with station programming, as well as the Programming Operations Center and the Premium Choice network to ensure seamless content integration.
