Dennis Clark
VP of Talent Development
United States

Dennis Clark loves nothing more than helping talent and programmers make great radio.

A lifelong radio junkie, he instantly knew that working with personalities was his calling when he joined the team of Rick Dees, the legendary LA morning man, 35 years ago. Yeah, it’s trite to say that he took to it like a fish to water, but boy, did Dennis ever swim.

Since then, he’s developed an unmatched track record of success developing new radio talent, strengthening established talent and training programmers on how to coach their teams most effectively.

As iHeartMedia’s VP of Talent Development, Ryan Seacrest, Elvis Duran, Kane, Johnjay and Rich, Bobby Bones, Nikki Sixx, The Breakfast Club and dozens of other personalities call on Dennis to help ensure that their shows are as engaging, relevant and absolutely can’t-miss as possible.

In 1995, Dennis started consulting in Europe, implementing radio research studies across the continent. This sparked a passion for working with international clients; since then, Dennis has worked with teams in Australia, New Zealand, the Middle East and Japan, and remains the only American consultant to have trained talent in every country in Europe.

An expert at navigating different types of ratings systems worldwide, Dennis masters his markets’ playbooks and develops innovative strategies for ratings success through talent development. Dennis’ belief in the power of personality programming fuels him to constantly find new ways for talent to connect with listeners. It’s drive like this that will keep radio essential for decades to come.
