Phil Zachary, who has been one of the public faces for the Wake County school bond issue, will soon be leaving the area.
Entercom Boston announced Tuesday that they had hired Zachary as their new Vice President and Market Manager. Zachary will start his new job Oct. 21 overseeing several Boston radio stations and The Boston Red Sox Radio Network.
Zachary has been in the public eye most recently as co-chairman of the Friends of Wake County, regularly speaking at events to promote passage of the school bonds. He was also in charge of communications for Friends of Wake during the 2006 bond campaign.
Zachary, currently president of Curtis Media Group, will stay on as co-chair through the final week of the bond campaign. Zachary, a native of Connecticut, talked about how much living in Wake had helped him and his family in a campaign video for Friends of Wake.
