iHeartMedia announced last week that Khary Sharpe has been named General Sales Manager for Power 99, Philadelphia’s Hip Hop and R&B, and 105.3 WDAS FM, Philly’s Best R&B & Throwbacks, effective immediately.

iHeartMedia Philadelphia has a strong cross-platform presence and includes a number of iconic brands and franchises — both broadcast and digital — encompassing six stations comprised of Urban, CHR, AC and Alt Rock formats. 

iHeartMedia has the leading consumer reach and influence across multiple platforms and delivers more live programming than any other media company. As general sales manager for two of Philadelphia’s top urban format stations, Sharpe will be responsible for team leadership, sales growth and strategic partnerships. He will report to Jeff Moore, senior vice president of sales for iHeartMedia Philadelphia.

“I am thrilled to add Khary to our growing team,” said Moore. “Khary is someone that I’ve admired in the market for a long time and his extensive knowledge of the industry and ability to create and grow relationships with our advertisers on the client level as well as internally will contribute to the work we’re doing in creating a great culture here at iHeartMedia Philly.”
