CAMARILLO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Salem Media Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: SALM), today announced that Atlanta
VP/General Manager Mike Moran is retiring effective the end of July. In

In light of Mike’s retirement, Salem Media is appointing Val Carolin as

Salem Media President of Radio Dave Santrella commented, “Mike has been
an important part of Salem’s leadership team, and we wish him well as he
moves into retirement. We are pleased with the depth of leadership
within our company, which allows us to quickly fill his role and provide
the opportunity for others to advance within Salem Media Group.”
Salem Media SVP Allen Power said, “In 2004 when I was asked to move
full-time into a corporate role, Mike was my choice to take the reins in
Atlanta. Under his leadership the Atlanta cluster has flourished in
revenue, audience growth, and most importantly in IMPACT!” Recently, The
Fish Atlanta in April and May had its best Nielsen PPM ratings ever.
