Each week, JACOBS MEDIA honors an "innovative" member of our business. This week, they've chosen LEE ABRAMS. JACOBS writes, "As we look back at the way that broadcast radio has evolved, morphed, branched into tributaries like satellite radio and streaming audio, LEE ABRAMS has been at the precipice of many of these changes, often getting there first.
"I think of him as radio’s 'Crown Prince of Innovation.' LEE is insightful, thoughtful, out of the box, and one of radio’s great thinkers and true characters. You may not share all his philosophies, but you can never question his passion, conviction, and his risk-taking. If you’re lucky enough to sit down and have a conversation with him, you walk away inspired and very likely rethinking your assumptions.
"LEE was the force behind the creation of AOR Radio, melding the best of Progressive Rock in the late ‘60s and merging it with formatics, systems, and discipline. His 'Superstars' format redefined Rock Radio for anyone and everyone who programmed back in the ‘70s, and his legacy is still very evident in today’s radio formats."
