Broadcasting & Digital Media Leadership, Innovation and Results!

We live in amazing times. In a new golden age of communications where real time content accessibility is changing the way we work, live and interact. New media technologies have blurred the traditional lines between broadcasting, print journalism, digital content, advertising and pesonal messaging. Sure, the old school broadcast world still exists, but it’s changing every day. Traditional broadcasters have turned the corner and no longer a question they have to be interactive to compete and need to reach people where and how they want to be reached. Any company, content owner or individual can also now be a “social” broadcaster, provide personalized, interactive broadband and wireless content to fans, clients, customers and friends. It’s an exciting new world in the way we live and communicate every day, with tremendous potential for new business and personal development but there is a catch.

Without the vision and tactical skills to strategically integrate new processes into traditional operations, develop new work flow, devise efficiencies in production and use talent as never before across platforms to drive promotions and branding, broadcasters and content organizations of all sizes will find obstacles and detours on the road to anticipated financial or social media success. An environment that’s willing to change from “how it’s always been done,”  has to be created.

Broadcasters, journalists, producers, editors, and managers need to possess a very different set of skills than they did just a few years ago.

I’ve been fortunate to be part of the revolution. As far as my backgound, here’s what I consider some of my key accomplishments helping shape the future, and drive success at some of the nation’s primier sports and entertainment media organizations…
