My name is Larry Timko On-Air handle Larry T. for the last ten plus year I have had the fantastic opportunity to work and grow in a 5 station cluster owned by Clear Channel Communications. I love my job. My coworkers and superiors would cite my passion as number one. With all the downsizing over the last few years Ive had to wear many hats. On-Air, writing & producing spots, imaging, promos, station & jock liners, football play by play etcYou will also find Im dedicated to the job, I reluctantly evacuated the station when ordered out in 2004 when Hurricane Charley hit us head on, and was back on air 3 hours later winning us national recognition.
As a Program Director you will find that my production is hip & humorous. Our Country station WIKX is currently running a national contest where you can win $1000 every hour. The Cue to Call I produced has garnered over 25 local winners which leads the country. As well as writing and voicing station imaging I program 6 hours of Americana which has been a huge hit. Im a chart reporter and on the Americana Music Radio Task Force.
I believe as a Program Director you have to develop a relationship with the listener, stay local, have lots of remotes and promote them as events. (I even come with my own DJ equipment and my own production library),I would work with the AEs closely and develop campaigns for clients that will keep them coming back for more. And most importantly work with the local jocks and have them develop into unique On-Air characters.
Passion, dedication are just a few of my attributes and I thank you for your consideration.
