Alpha Selects A Pair of RVPs


One will oversee markets in Illinois, Wisconsin and Michigan. The other will oversee markets in Missouri, Minnesota and select locales in Iowa.

Each now hold the title of Regional Vice Presidents at Alpha Media.

Brian Foster will take Illinois, Wisconsin, and Michigan, while Tuttle will handle the other markets for the Portland, Ore.-based radio broadcasting company.

They each report to COO Larry Bastida.

Bastida commented, “Throughout our extensive search to fill the Regional President position, it became clear that Brian and Les could play crucial roles. In recent weeks, the added collaboration from these three has enhanced the discussion as the company gains momentum going into 2022.”

Foster has worked in the Chicago market as General Sales Manager and Market Manager for the last twenty years. In addition, Foster served as Vice President of NM360 Digital from 2008 to 2015. During that time, Foster was named to the “Top 40 Under 40” list by Radio Ink magazine.

Over the past eleven years, Tuttle has been Market Manager for Alpha Media in the Missouri market of Moberly-Farmington-Festus, comprised of eight radio stations, two information portals, and all digital marketing services.

The appointments follow the recent naming as a Regional President of Zoe Burdine-Fly.
