Yahoo Political Ad Guy Moves to Westwood One

It's official: Richard Kosinski, former VP of political advertising for Yahoo, is moving to Westwood One

ClickZ_Campaign08_katefinal.jpgIt’s official: Richard Kosinski, former VP of political advertising for Yahoo, is moving to Westwood One. As SVP, Chief Digital Officer, Kosinski will head up Westwood’s digital products such as news, sports and talk as well as all digital product and business development. While the Westwood name is synonymous with radio, the company is branching out to all platforms.

As I reported in April, Kosinski is replaced by Yahoo vet Diane Rinaldo, who apparently had done some work with political advertisers before taking the new role.

A source of mine — a big name in the online political ad space who is responsible for planning online media buys for advocacy groups and candidate campaigns — told me after Kosinski’s departure was made public, “I miss him already.”
