BEASLEY BROADCAST/AUGUSTA ups CHRIS O’KELLEY to OM. O’KELLEY replaces TEE GENTRY, who is leaving the market to be OM at BEASLEY/TAMPA. O’KELLEY reports to VP/Market Manager MARK HADDON. Most recently, O’KELLEY served as APD/MD for Country WKXC, positions he has held since joining BEASLEY BROADCAST/AUGUSTA.
HADDON commented, “When you have a cluster like ours, with many long-term employees, you get to know the unique strengths that each person brings to his or her job. When positions open up and you can offer a dedicated employee a new opportunity to shine, it sure is rewarding. CHRIS O’KELLEY is recognized and involved in our community. He is prepared to step into the role of operations manager for our cluster and I know he will do a fine job.”
O’KELLY said, “I guess you could say I’m beyond excited. Following TEE GENTRY is a tall order. TEE has been my mentor, my colleague and my friend for 20 years. I can’t thank him, and our former market manager KENT DUNN, enough for all they have taught me over the years and for their belief in me with this new promotion. BEASLEY/AUGUSTA has a new, strong management team in place with MARK HADDON leading the way. We’re family here and this place is home to me. I’m honored and ready to give it my all.”
