REGENT COMMUNICATIONS announced the retirement of FRED MURR as Senior VP/Operations due to personal health reasons. Reflecting on his successful radio career, MURR said, "It has been a privilege to work closely with BILL STAKELIN and the radio professionals at REGENT. While I will certainly not miss selling spots, interpreting ratings, or analyzing financial statements, I will greatly miss working with the wonderful people in the radio industry and especially the members of my REGENT family."
President/CEO WILLIAM STAKELIN commented, "FRED has been at REGENT since we first opened the doors in 1997. He was also by my side during the development of two other successful radio companies. FRED’s extensive radio experience was instrumental in building REGENT into a premiere mid-small market radio station group. FRED and his family will be in our prayers. We are all very grateful for the unselfish contribution FRED made to REGENT and the radio industry."
STAKELIN announced that the annual REGENT award in recognition of outstanding performance given to the REGENT "Market of the Year" will be named "The FRED MURR Award" in FRED’s honor.
