A Message To My Future Employer

gregvalentineheadshot01Yeah, this is (mostly) the same message found on It’s my main ‘message’ right now. So naturally, I’d like to get it front of as many eyeballs as possible…

Okay, here it is. This is who I am, and why I believe I’d be an outstanding on-air personality, ratings and revenue winner, team-member, and even programming department leader and brand manager (if called upon) for your radio station.

Recently, I excelled as Assistant Program Director for WKIS/Miami (99.9 Kiss Country) until some unfortunate budget cuts. Before that, I got Memphis movin’ every morning on Snap! 94.1. My radio adventures have had me performing virtually all dayparts, formats and radio duties in cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Cleveland. Crucially, I’ve spent an entire career being a thoroughly prepped communicator, entertainer, content-provider, pop culture freak, and friend to listeners of the radio, passionately creating programming that caters to those listeners’ lifestyles and communities.

Since the budget cuts at WKIS, I’ve been poking around, seeing what’s out there, exploring full-time radio options. Meanwhile, I’ve been keeping my chops fresh doing weekends and fill-in at WRMF in West Palm Beach. This has been an incredibly challenging time for the radio industry. I’ve heard it said, if you aren’t doing 12 jobs right now, you aren’t working! It’s true. But I find it a little odd, anyway. Only because I’m a guy that’s been doing his radio that way enthusiastically all along!

My experience, well-rounded skill-set, positive attitude, and “the job’s not done ’til it’s done right” work ethic make me the ideal solution for any number of opportunities at your cluster. By the way, please don’t just take my word for it. Check with the people I’ve busted my butt for:

Bill Pasha, Entercom, VP/Programming email
Dave Labrozzi, CBS Radio Baltimore, VP/Programming email
Ken Boesen, Beasley, WKIS/Miami, Program Director email
Jason Kidd, CBS Radio Baltimore, WWMX email
Bob Neumann, WRMF/West Palm Beach, Program Director email

Finally, is the right place get a sense of the kind of radio I can do for your company. There’s ample archives of audio, video, and writing. Plus, an all-encompassing resume and pages of photos. Also a full set of links to all my social networking sites. By the way, is a website that I personally built from scratch after picking up a copy of “HTML For Dummies” (No joke). Strong webskills being another weapon I bring to the battle.

Thanks for reading this and allowing me to share my ‘message’ with you. I hope I’ve strongly conveyed to you my passion for great radio, and my desire to be part of the targeted and successful broadcasting you create every day! If you have any questions, or need any additional material, just drop me a line. Or hey, nothing beats an actual conversation. I hope to talk with you soon!
