JACOBS MEDIA Pres./Founder FRED JACOBS has bestowed the latest "Most Innovative" crown on GALAXY COMMUNICATIONS CEO/Pres. ED LEVINE, writing, "I’ve known ED LEVINE from back in the day when he was a rock ‘n roll programmer in upstate NEW YORK. ED was part of the INFINITY BROADCASTING cadre of P.D.s that included ANDY BLOOM, OEDIPUS, MARK CHERNOFF, TIM SABEAN, RON NENNI, BUZZ KNIGHT and others. He was programming WJFK/WASHINGTON, D.C., when HOWARD STERN was rolling out his historic syndication juggernaut, and clearly learned many lessons (as did we all) from CEO MEL KARMAZIN.
"In 1990, ED switched gears and turned his focus to ownership in the market area he knew all too well: SYRACUSE and UTICA/ROME, NEW YORK. In the years since, GALAXY COMMUNICATIONS has become a dominant player in both markets, both in ratings and revenue."
