JVC MEDIA has appointed CHAD HALLMARK and DONNA DRAKE as Dir./Client Services. HALLMARK will develop this department for JVC’s brand new GAINESVILLE-OCALA, FL five-station radio cluster, while DRAKE will helm the LONG ISLAND four station-cluster. Both take the title,
"HALLMARK will concentrate building and developing long standing relationships with clients, agencies and listeners," JVC FLORIDA VP/Market Manager SHANE REEVE said. "This really will become a department that focuses on making these stations market friendly and developing that synergy between sales and programming."
"DONNA DRAKE is a proven winner on LONG ISLAND and a natural talent for developing business and relationships," JVC LONG ISLAND GSM BRUCE SHEPARD said. "She is a wealth of knowledge and professionalism that we need as we expand our reach and develop new business. We are lucky to have her."
"One of my first radio jobs was in this market at WNDD, it’s great to be back and working for a company that loves NTR and local radio as much as I do," HALLMARK said. "I am excited about the potential we have here and the ability to do radio the way its suppose to be done. Get ready, GAINESVILLE-OCALA, here we come!"
"This is a dream come true job for me," DRAKE said. "I get to use all of my skills and talents and help create and shape entertainment and marketing for a host of businesses. I am also excited to work with CHAD and we share ideas and new ways to develop revenue for the clusters."
"With the addition of Client Service Directors in each market, the wealth of knowledge each of them bring to the party, and the level of commitment they bring to the company, this is a win for our advertising clients and our listeners, both DONNA and CHAD will create new exciting events and promotions that are fun, local and very sales friendly," JVC Pres./CEO JOHN CARACCIOLO said. "If you had to give these guys a real title, it would be Directors of FUN."
JVC MEDIA has been in a rapid growth mode, recently expanding on LONG ISLAND with its entertainment and broadcast division adding jobs and staff and working hard to make radio local and community friendly once again.
