Corus Radio promotes Giacomelli
Victor Giacomelli was responsible for the Smirnoff Ice/Triple Black Edge promotion for Corus Radio Toronto in 2002. It earned him a Samurai Award, the company's highest recognition for an employee. He also led major sponsorship events for 102.1 The Edge - such as NikeRunTO and the CASBY Music Awards - and picked up innovation awards from both the station and Cossette Media. Now Giacomelli gets the two treasured letters: V and P.
Victor Giacomelli will be the new VP sales for Corus Radio, effective Feb. 5. With 14 years of radio sales experience, he has been with Corus Radio since 1999 – most recently as senior general sales manager for Corus Radio Toronto and general sales manager for 102.1 The Edge. In his new role, he will be responsible for overseeing all local and national radio sales for Corus Entertainment, reporting directly to president John Hayes.
Giacomelli’s career began to take off when he became retail sales supervisor at CHML and Y95, soon afterward becoming retail sales manager for Hamilton, which encompassed CHML, Y108 and Energy 95.3 (now The New Country 95.3).
