Each week, JACOBS MEDIA honors an "innovative" member of our business. This week, they've chosen GEORGE GIMARC.
On their blog, JACOBS writes, "When it comes to innovation, there are people who have one great idea that becomes their entire focus and legacy. They become famous for doing one amazing thing or a single accomplishment. Then there are people who are fountains of ideas. They are driven by always being around something new and interesting and only satisfied when they are looking toward the next big thing.
'GEORGE GIMARC is definitely in the latter category. When we started 'Radio’s Most Innovative,' we promised to highlight people that perhaps you haven’t heard of. And if you’re not from DALLAS, TEXAS, you may not know GEORGE. During his career, he’s been deeply involved in the birth of multiple formats, including Classic Rock and Alternative. He is also the person who developed the only radio format to ever receive a patent. But radio isn’t his only area of expertise."
