Biography Of Ed Salamon

As the Executive Director of the Country Radio Broadcasters, Ed Salamon works every day to make Country Radio more successful. He is responsible for producing the CRB events including the radio industrys largest convention, The Country Radio Seminar. He also oversees CRBs many other industry initiatives, which include research, awards and scholarships.

Ed made his initial industry contacts deejaying record hops and playing in garage bands that appeared at dances held by top 40 deejays in his hometown of Pittsburgh, Pa.

After college, Ed was hired by KDKA radio to handle publicity, promotion and market research, but soon became Music Director of the legendary 50,000-watt clear channel station. There, Ed developed a system of call-out music research.

Two years later, Ed accepted an offer to program a Country station, WEEP, also in Pittsburgh. In 1975, the unexpected success of this station, in a non-traditional Country market, attracted attention and earned Ed the offer to program WHN, New York, which was failing after two years in the Country format.

The Wall Street Journal and the Business sections of The New York Times were among the press to document the rise of WHN from 14th to 2nd place. In the late 70s, ads touting WHN as the 2nd largest radio station on earth and the biggest thing since rock and roll were often on the cover of Broadcasting Magazine. Ed used research to take chances on music. Much of this music was not what Nashville was marketing, and there was an initiative to remove WHN as a Billboard Country reporter. Ed produced the nationally syndicated series, Live From The Lone Star Café. Meanwhile, WHN, its air staff, and Ed won numerous awards and more importantly, WHN set the record as the most listened to Country radio station in America. Ed was named National Program Director of the Storer Radio chain. When Storer sold its stations, Ed stayed with WHN and new owner Mutual Broadcasting and got involved with network programming, where he met Dick Clark.


In 1981, Ed formed The United Stations Radio Network with Dick and Nick Verbitsky. As Programming head, he created The Weekly Country Music Countdown, which is still on the air, as well as countless weekly shows and specials. United Stations bought the RKO Radio Networks, then merged with Transtar to form Unistar. In the mid 90s, Ed became bi-coastal in order to run the 24/7 Satellite Format division that had been Transtar. Infinity purchased Unistar, then bought Westwood One and consolidated the networks. Ed became President/Programming of Westwood One, at one time reporting directly to Mel Karmazin. Charles Osgood, Martha Stewart, and David Letterman were among the programs that reported to Ed.

Ed Salamon was head of Programming for a major radio network for more than twenty years. He has been responsible for the creation of more radio programming than anyone in modern radio history.


Since the 70s, Ed had served on the Agenda Committee and Board of the Country Radio Broadcasters on a pro bono basis. In the mid 90s, Ed was named President, and held that office longer than anyone in the organizations history. Since becoming Executive Director of the CRB on July 1, 2002, Ed has been able to devote total efforts toward his passion for Country radio.
