    Default BIN Promotes Andrea Coleman To VP/News Operations; Mike Stevens To Managing Editor

    From Radio Insight:

    iHeartMedia’s Black Information Network has announced the promotion of Andrea Coleman to Vice President of News Operations and Mike Stevens to Managing Editor.
    Coleman joined BIN at its 2020 launch as a news anchor and was promoted to News Director in February. She has served as an anchor and reporter for CNN and WGCL-TV Atlanta earlier in her career before moving into publishing where she launched two Atlanta area magazines. Coleman later served as chief spokesperson and media relations officer for the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority and a communications consultant.
    Stevens has served as an anchor for BIN since its launch. He previously has served as a television news anchor in markets including Philadelphia, Columbus, Atlanta, Sacramento and New York and has worked as a radio news anchor for WCBS New York, Moody Radio, and WFLA Tampa.
    The two promotions help fill the positions held by Tanita Myers until her untimely death in July.
    BIN: Black Information Network,*the 24/7 comprehensive national audio news network dedicated to providing an objective, accurate and trusted source of continual news with a Black voice and perspective, announced today that Andrea Coleman has been elevated to Vice President of News Operations, while Mike Stevens becomes BIN’s first-ever Managing Editor.
    As Vice President of News Operations, Coleman will lead the charge in keeping BIN: Black Information Network front and center while guiding newsroom operations to optimize the network’s reach, scale and influence. Coleman previously served as News Director of BIN. In the new Managing Editor position, Stevens will work closely with Coleman to guide newsroom operations, as well as assign and coordinate national and local news coverage. The shift in leadership structure comes after the passing of Tanita Myers, a seasoned network and local news manager, producer, broadcaster and anchor who joined BIN in June 2020 and was most recently serving as Vice President of News Operations.
    “A major part of Tanita Myers’ legacy at the Black Information Network will forever be the incredible depth of talent she hired. Following her passing, Andrea and Mike not only helped us to continue her work but have built upon this foundation,” said Tony Coles, President of BIN: Black Information Network. “It only felt natural to elevate both to these leadership positions and trust them to continue bringing BIN to new heights. I am excited to see two of our best journalists advance into these new roles, and I am confident we will continue to grow under their leadership.”
    Andrea Coleman joined iHeartMedia as an anchor/reporter for the Black Information Network in the summer of 2020 with 30 years of experience in the communications industry.*Coleman is an Emmy award-winning journalist who formerly served as an anchor for CNN as well as CBS Atlanta. Other career highlights include the founding and publishing of “Cultured Living Atlanta Magazine,” a local publication that was dedicated to celebrating the history and excellence of the Black community in the metro Atlanta area. A longtime resident of Atlanta, Coleman is familiar with the issues of the Black community and is committed to helping give voice and expression to its success.*Coleman has a Bachelor of Communications Degree from the University of Texas at Arlington and a Masters of Professional Studies in Publishing from George Washington University.
    Mike Stevens has anchored and reported breaking news from coast to coast. His assignments have included news operations in New York City, Atlanta, Sacramento, Tampa, Flint, Columbus, Ohio and his native Philadelphia. During his 25-year career, Stevens has interviewed many newsmakers, athletes and entertainers including Coretta Scott King, Hank Aaron and Bill Cosby. Stevens reported from the scene of bombings in Atlanta and Birmingham and was among the first to announce the deaths of Michael Jackson, Prince and Whitney Houston.
