Additional Notes
   Of particular interest for you and the members of your team as you consider my skills are my strong accomplishments in developing unique yet familiar music programming and production abilities by combining business acumen with technical savvy to achieve improved operating efficiency internally and improved cash flow for the broadcast facility as a whole. Additionally, my accomplishments have been achieved by success in ratings, branding, on air news and sales experience plus improving cooperation between management and staff. After twenty five years, I have a thorough understanding of every aspect of a radio station. My former employers are very happy with my performance, and I view myself as somewhat of a passionate and competent employee who turns listeners into fans. I am eager to consider new challenges.

If you are seeking a talented individual who stays abreast of his field, who understands technology, who earns 100% staff support, and who is as career-committed as it takes to achieve total success, then please consider what I have to offer.

Thank you for your attention to these materials. I certainly look forward to exploring this further. I have programmed many interesting shows that are both educational and informative. I would love to sit down and discuss all of these ideas with you and your staff.
