UPDATE - I was just named one of the "Best Radio PD's" by Radio Ink magazine for the second year in a row.

Ever since I was 13, I have wanted to be "on the radio". Given the chance to work with a legendary station like WIKY in Evansville was a challenge I happily accepted. The heritage and historical success of the station works as an asset AND a liability.

Over the past five years, converting WIKY from "radio station" to "21st Century Media Outlet" has been rewarding and humbling. We started with a thorough research project asking the hard questions about the station's programming and image. Using those results as a guideline, we crafted a plan that involved intensive music research, a change in the imaging and station sound and then a major move in morning drive with a new news anchor. During this process, WIKY Radio has re-established ratings dominance in the Evansville radio market. And WIKY has won the NAB Crystal Award, the Marconi Award for Air Personality of the Year, the Radio & Records Award for AC Station of the Year and the Platinum Award for Best Local Radio Station as voted by readers of the Evansville Courier and Press newspaper.

While things are great here, my passion is in building and fixing more than maintaining. I would love the chance to work with a large market station or medium market cluster that needs programming and marketing help. Email me at markelliott1@me.com . Links to resumes and aircheck below.
