Bob Pittman

CEO
Clear Channel Media Holdings

What do you do after being inducted into the Broadcasting and Cable Hall of Fame? Well, there are still jobs to be done. For Pittman, that means leading a global media, digital and entertainment company which includes Clear Channel Radio, which reaches 240 million listeners every month, and Clear Channel Outdoor, with close to one million displays in over 40 countries. Pittman is the co-founder and programmer who led the team that created MTV and has been CEO of MTV Networks, AOL Networks, Six Flags Theme Parks, Quantum Media, Century 21 Real Estate, and Time Warner Enterprises. He was also COO of America Online, Inc. and later of AOL Time Warner. Whew. That’s a far cry from his formative years as a radio announcer in his home state of Mississippi.
