Rick Lenarcic has resigned from his position as COO Regional at ARN. He announced: “After nearly 30 years in the media, many different and exciting roles, moving/living across this great country, being part of many mergers and acquisitions and too many flights, long road trips, dodgy hotel rooms and meetings, I now need to spend time with my beautiful wife and loving family and start working on my health to get prepared for my next chapter in the book of life.”
