I just hit 25 years in my time with Radio World
With our last issue, I take a moment to mark my 25th anniversary of joining Radio World and to appreciate the circle of friends and colleagues who create the memories and stories we have shared and continue to create.
1996, apart from being a pivotal year for radio regulation in the United States, was also the year I got here, having cut my teeth in the radio newsrooms and then having learned radio technology as a sales and marketing manager on the manufacturing and reseller side. of our company.
This crazy industry has changed so much since then. The challenges that broadcast radio stations, radio executives and radio engineers have faced over these 25 years have been remarkable.
But the same goes for radio’s capacity for reinvention.
It has been exhilarating to guide Radio World’s content through a similar process, partnering with the management of IMAS, NewBay Media and now Future, our most dynamic parent company to date.
I am grateful to today’s business leaders who trusted me including Carmel King, Rick Stamberger, John casey and Zillah Byng-Thorne, as well as to our many advertisers. I also have the privilege of working with a remarkable group of contributors, including a âbrainâ of engineers who have become my dear friends.
But none of this happens without you, the industry professional who read our stories, save our ebooks, watch our webcasts.
Whether your title is Chief Engineer, Station Owner, Department Manager, Manufacturing Employee, Regulator, or one of the many other key roles in radio, I hope the content on Radio World will continue to help you in your job. and your career, keeping you informed while having fun and stimulating new thinking.
So thank you for the trust and loyalty you have shown me and Radio World over these 25 years – and we are on for many more years together.
