“It has been remarkable working alongside Stacey and watching her persevere through numerous changes and challenges,” said Jeff Moore, Market President of iHeartMedia Philadelphia. “A tireless worker who puts the needs of iHeart Philly above all else will now get the chance to put her stamp on the Promotions Department in a time when making deep and meaningful relationships with our audiences and partners couldn’t be more important.”

“It’s a pleasure to be able to watch Stacey ascend to the next phase of her career,” said Corbett. “Her expertise with all things iHeart Philadelphia extends almost two decades, so to be able to place the future of our brands in her hands promotionally is a win for all of us.”

Thomas is an 18-year veteran of iHeartMedia Philadelphia starting on the ground floor as a member of the street team. She has served as Promotions Coordinator and Online Content Coordinator, then Media Integration Director before taking on her new position as Director of Marketing and Promotions. Thomas is a graduate of Widener University with a BA in Communications Studies.

“I’m excited about taking on this new challenge of working with six of the region’s most iconic brands,” said Thomas. “I’m looking forward to growing the cluster to the next level with the support of the extraordinary team here at iHeartMedia Philadelphia.”
