Cordillera Executive Dan Stein To Retire

The station group’s director of programming and operations will step down on May 25.


After 25 years in broadcasting, Dan Stein, Cordillera Communications’ director of programming and operations, will retire from television on May 25.

Stein joined the company in 2012. Prior to his tenure at Cordillera, he had an extensive background in the industry. After graduating from Syracuse University, Stein began his career at KDLH Duluth, Minn., and later expanded his station experience with positions at WFTC Minneapolis and KMOL (now WOAI) San Antonio.

Stein also had several group management roles including as director of programming and research for Benedek Broadcasting, VP of programming for Clear Channel Television, and as a consultant to New Vision Television.

“I’ve had an amazing run and am thrilled to end it on a high note as part of one of the best independent broadcast groups around,” Stein said. “During my career, I’ve had the honor to serve alongside many industry greats including Jim Yager, Rip Riordan, Steve Spendlove, Bill Moll, and Terry Hurley. Even more incredible has been the opportunity to collaborate with the outstanding professionals across this industry, many of whom I’ll sincerely miss.”

Cordillera Communications President Terry Hurley commented on the pending retirement: “I have had the pleasure of working with Dan three times during his career, including for the past 4+ years at Cordillera Communications, and wish him the very best as he moves on from the TV business to other areas of interest. Dan has earned the respect of everyone at Cordillera, and across the television industry, and will definitely be missed.”

A search for Stein’s successor is currently underway.
