Our Team
   
Mark Sullivan, Senior Vice President, General Manager 

Mark is a Senior Vice President of Cumulus Media and General Manager of the 8-station cluster in Kansas City, which also includes the Chief’s Radio Network. Mark also has regional responsibility for Topeka, KS and Columbia, MO. In Mark's 13 years with Cumulus, he has held ever-increasing levels of responsibility. He started by successfully managing newly acquired markets for Cumulus in Florence,SC; Fayetteville,NC; and then served as Regional Director of Midwest Sales and SVP Sales (where he oversaw up to 30 Cumulus markets from our Atlanta corporate headquarters).  Mark chose to return to local radio operations in Nashville to get closer to the business leaders and marketers that fuel his passion for radio and, in no small part, because he and his family love Music City! When presented the opportunity to move to Kansas City it was an easy decision as Mark’s wife, Heather, is from Leavenworth, KS and they both graduated from Kansas State University. Mark is a well-traveled army brat, so making the latest move didn't faze him, but for the first time it feels like coming home.
