Charles Warfield, veteran radio executive, elected chairman of NAB Joint Board

(June 7, 2013) At the recent National Association of Broadcasters' board meeting, members elected Charles Warfield, Jr., YMF Media President and COO, as the new Joint Board Chairman. He succeeds Paul Karpowicz, President of Meredith Local Media Group.

A 33-year veteran of the broadcasting industry, Warfield was president and chief operating officer of ICBC Broadcast Holdings, Inc. (ICBCBH) since July 2000. YMF Media acquired the properties of ICBC last year, including 17 radio stations in New York City, San Francisco, Jackson, Miss., and Columbia, S.C.

Warfield joined ICBC as corporate controller and was instrumental in the acquisition of five radio stations. Later, he joined Summit Broadcasting Corporation as vice president and general manager of WRKS-FM, New York, which was named "the most listened to radio station in America."

In July 1997, Warfield was appointed vice president and general manager of heritage stations, WDAS-AM/FM, Philadelphia. He was appointed senior vice president of urban regional operations for Chancellor Media Corporation in March 1998, with oversight of KKBT-FM, Los Angeles; WJLB-FM/WMXD-FM, Detroit; WGCI-AM/FM and WVAZ-FM, Chicago; WUSL-FM and WDAS-FM, Philadelphia and WEDR-FM, Miami.

He was promoted to senior vice president of regional operations in October 1998, with responsibility for Chancellor's 30 stations in Chicago, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Miami and Puerto Rico.

After graduating with honors from Hampton University with a B.S. in accounting, he began his career as staff auditor at Ernst & Young. In 1974, Charles caught the "broadcasting bug" when he joined RCA Corporation as supervising senior auditor.
