iHeart Staffs Up in Washington


iHeartMediaYou know you’re a big company when you have your own office in the Nation’s Capital to deal with congressional and FCC issues. And iHeartMedia is picking up an individual uniquely qualified to deal with both.

Sara Morris will be the new Senior Director, Government Affairs. She will report to Jessica Marventano, Senior Vice President of Government Affairs.

In her most recent post, she worked for the FCC. And her job there entailed dealing with Congress. She was Director of the FCC’s Legislative Affairs division, representing the FCC before Republican and Democratic offices and committees in both the Senate and House of Representatives.

She performed similar duties for the Department of Commerce, and has worked on the staff of communications-savvy then-Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA) when he had a leadership roles on the House Subcommittee on Telecommunications and Finance.

“Sara has been at the intersection of telecom policy and its politics for many years and is a seasoned hand and resource for many.  Her expertise, deep knowledge of the telecom field and ability to bridge the differences across the aisle make her a unique and welcome addition to our team,” said Marventano.
