(e)(1) Employment Agreement Amendment – Andrew Sutor

On February 20, 2020, Entercom Communications Corp. (the “Company”) entered into a First Amendment to Employment Agreement with Andrew P. Sutor (the “First Amendment”). The First Amendment extends Mr. Sutor’s employment agreement through December 31, 2023. Mr. Sutor’s base compensation was increased to $575,000 per year. Mr. Sutor’s annual incentive bonus target (relating to periods from and after January 1, 2020 (i.e., specifically excluding any annual incentive bonus relating to 2019)), was increased to $325,000. In addition, Mr. Sutor will receive a signing bonus of 100,000 restricted stock units which may vest: (i) 50% on January 5, 2022; (ii) 25% on January 5, 2023; and (iii) 25% on January 5, 2024.

The First Amendment removed language in Mr. Sutor’s employment agreement that provided that “all future equity” grants would vest “50% on the second anniversary of the date of grant and 25% on each of the third and fourth anniversaries of the date of grant.” This language was replaced with language which affords more flexibility to the Company and now provides “such equity grants shall vest as determined by the Compensation Committee of the Board in its discretion.”

Finally, the First Amendment provides that upon certain terminations of Mr. Sutor’s employment agreement (and employment), Mr. Sutor’s outstanding equity compensation will vest. Specifically, vesting will occur if: Mr. Sutor’s employment agreement is terminated without “Cause” (as defined in Mr. Sutor’s employment agreement); the termination of Mr. Sutor’s employment agreement occurred without the Company making a “Qualified Offer” (as defined in Mr. Sutor’s employment agreement); or upon a termination of Mr. Sutor’s employment agreement by the Company in breach of Mr. Sutor’s employment agreement.

The foregoing is a summary description of the material terms of the First Amendment. For further information regarding the terms and conditions of the First Amendment, reference is made to the complete text thereof which will be filed as an exhibit to the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019.
