Darrell Brown is ready to call it a career. Bonneville International’s President has announced he will retire on August 1. Tanya Vea, the company’s Executive VP of Content and Media Operations, will take over as President and COO.

“I’ve loved my time at Bonneville, and it’s not easy to leave, but it’s the right time for me and my family,” Brown said. “I’m grateful for the opportunity that I’ve had to associate with so many wonderful employees as we’ve worked together to further Bonneville’s mission to be a positive influence on the communities we serve. We’ve grown as a company in our reach and impact, and I know that Tanya [Vea] will take Bonneville to the next level. I’m thrilled for the future of the company under her leadership.” 

Brown took over as President of Bonneville in 2013. Prior to that, he worked for McGraw-Hill Broadcasting Company for nearly three decades.

Under Brown’s leadership, Bonneville has added stations in Denver, Sacramento, San Francisco and Salt Lake City to its radio portfolio.

His impact on the industry has been felt outside of the buildings and companies he has led. Brown served on the ABC Affiliate Board and has been involved in a number of NAB efforts. He has served as the board chair for the NAB Leadership Foundation. Prior to that, he was on the group’s board of directors.

His successor, Tanya Vea has been with Bonneville since 2010. She’s been instrumental in the company’s effort to embrace new distribution platforms while also overseeing the company’s operation in Salt Lake City, which includes radio and television stations and digital platforms.

“Darrell [Brown] has been an incredible mentor, and I’m so grateful for all that he’s done for Bonneville. He has led by example as a steward of the company and its resources. I will miss working with him, and I feel incredibly fortunate to take on this role knowing that he has put the company in a position of strength,” she said. “Bonneville is a special company. I’m committed to building on the foundation of those who have come before me and am focused on fulfilling our mission to be trusted voices in our communities. Our greatest strength is our team of talented people, and I am honored to be able to work with them to grow Bonneville for the future.”

He added that since announcing his exit, he has been contacted by “truly conservative outlets” to continue his program, but said he won’t begin a new show until after the 2024 election.

After more than a decade, 710 KNUS weekend host Randy Corporan has hosted his last show for the Denver news/talk station.

According to the host, Salem Media Group informed him it would not be renewing his contract late last month.

Corporan told CompleteColorado.com that after the death of his wife in June of last year, he considered ending the show. However, he persisted, commuting an hour and a half one way to continue the show.

He added that since announcing his exit, he has been contacted by “truly conservative outlets” to continue his program, but said he won’t begin a new show until after the 2024 election.

“I want to get the start of my new life going and sort myself out,” he said. “And I want to take care of some personal problems that need to be dealt with.”

Randy Corporan is listed as one of the defendants — along with Salem Media Group, parent company to 710 KNUS — in a defamation lawsuit brought forth by Dominion Voting Systems over what the election machine company calls “false claims of fraud in the 2020 election.”
