COX RADIO EVP DICK FERGUSON has announced that he will retire from the company effective MAY 31. FERGUSON, who will also not stand for re-election to the COX RADIO Board of Directors in MAY, joined COX in 1997 when the company bought his NEWCITY COMMUNICATIONS. He will remain a consultant to COX in his retirement.
"Working with BOB NEIL and the incredibly talented and committed team at COX RADIO has been a truly rewarding experience," said FERGUSON in a press release. "Choosing COX as the company to purchase NEWCITY ten years ago was one of my best business decisions and has been a win-win for everyone involved. I am very proud of the contribution of former NEWCITY employees in helping COX RADIO build on its reputation as one of the best companies in our industry to work for. I am also grateful to JIM KENNEDY, NICK TRIGONY and the team at COX ENTERPRISES for their support during my tenure with COX."
COX RADIO President/CEO BOB NEIL commented, “DICK has been a friend and a mentor for 23 years. His contributions to the radio industry and COX RADIO are only exceeded by his heart and sheer love for the radio business. His integrity, passion, and caring for the people he works with are examples that we should all strive for. Fortunately, we’ve talked him into considering some consulting work for us, so we can continue to tap into his great talents.”
