CMG Promotes SVP/Finance To CFO Role


He was SVP and Director of Operations for Cox Reps from February 2010 until January 2014, when he co-founded Video and served as its SVP of Revenue and Operations. In 2020, he came back to the Cox family as SVP/Finance for Cox Media Group.

Six months ago, he became the company’s interim co-CFO. Now, he’s been promoted to the full role of Chief Financial Officer.

Earning the promotion is Brad Smith. “His promotion reflects his success in helping CMG develop its corporate vision and business strategy while evolving the finance team to be more effective and efficient,” the company said.

CMG President/CEO Dan York added, “Brad brings a unique skillset and perspective to the role of CFO. He’s committed to maximizing company performance and efficiency and has been invaluable in helping CMG win in our local markets today while positioning us to continue to do so in the future. This is a well-earned promotion for Brad that also reflects the strength and depth of CMG’s talented team.”

Smith’s experience includes roles as CFO for Four Points Media Group, from 2007-2010, and as VP of Finance for NBC Universal from January 2005 until taking the Four Points role.

“We have a great team at CMG, one that’s bonded by our commitment to creating value and generating revenue while helping our customers grow their businesses,” Smith said. “Local media is special because of the positive impact we have on the communities and businesses we serve. To consistently do that requires collective dedication and partnerships across CMG to align vision with strategy and execution to ultimately exceed our business goals.”

Smith began his career in 2003 as a Senior Audit Manager for General Electric.
