Keith Mitchell

Fred, thanks for the entry, got me thinking about our linchpins within our cluster. Without a doubt, similar to Steve in Philly, is Bob Reilly. Bob has no reason to work here except he loves radio and promotions. Bob is in his 60's, acts like he's 25, and is our "go to" guy in the department. He sets up remotes, hangs banners, schedules appearances, loves meeting the public, takes care of the fleet of vehicles, even dresses up like an elf for when everyone's kid comes to the office to visit Santa. I would hate to think what would happen if we didn't have "Captain Bobby".


Thanks for nominating "Captain Bobby" - another example of dedicated radio heroes. Can't wait to read more of these "linchpin" stories. Appreciate it, Keith.

I'd like to nominate Ben Perez at Greater Media Detroit. Ben is the Regional Promotion Mgr. at Greater Media-Detroit. He oversees events for the three station cluster (WRIF-WCSX-WMGC) and several Promotion/Event Coordinators and up to
60 interns. He began his career at Greater Media as an intern himself 13 years ago. I hope the fact that he works for the company sponsoring this competition won't work against him winning. Sincerely ~ Dick Kernen


Dick, we will not hold Ben's Greater Media-ness against him. :-) Thanks for nominating him. He does a great job for this cluster.
