"This is the third time I have called on CARMY to do the improbable," VP/Market Manager and RBG DIGITAL VP DAVE PRESHER said."His infectious style, combined with unparalleled work ethic, ability to work miracles with small budgets, digital, NTR and most importantly innovative approach to creating winners and profitable winners ... we are lucky to have him. He believes the vibe in the hallways impacts the sound and thus the ratings. Few know of his great sense of humor as noted by wearing 6" lifts and a toupee, which add to the whole package."

"The plan, strategies, and tactics are in place that will make my transition to the OM position an easy one. I am thrilled to be leading a major market air staff and a pair of stations that are well on their way to ratings, revenue, and alternate revenue success!"
