HUBBARD RADIO/SEATTLE VP/Market Manager MARC KAYE will step down after 45 years in the broadcast business. “I promised myself that when I hit the 45-year mark in the great business of radio, I was going to get a bit selfish and consider that milestone was enough to prove I have given it my all. I am looking forward to spending a whole lot more time with my wife and see what new challenges and chapters I can write as I move forward,” KAYE said. “I have been fortunate to have worked with the very best and for this I am very grateful.”
KAYE started in radio as an account executive at SUSQUEHANNA BROADCASTING’s WGBB/Long Island in 1973. In his eight-year run there, he rose to the GM post. After that, KAYE led radio stations in ST. PETERSBURG, HOUSTON, SEATTLE, TAMPA and LOS ANGELES. In 1997, KAYE began managing Sandusky’s five-station cluster in SEATTLE, which were then sold to HUBBARD.
“MARC’s broadcast career has been his dream come true,” HUBBARD RADIO Pres./CEO DREW HOROWITZ said. “It has been my good fortune to have had the opportunity to work with MARC as he is the consummate broadcast professional. Wishing him all the best in his next chapter.”
“Having the opportunity to work with MARC KAYE has been one of the great delights of my career. MARC’s positive spirit, creativity and passion for life made working with him a great joy,” HUBBARD Chair GINNY MORRIS said. “MARC will be very hard to replace but we are very happy that he will stay in his position through the transition and will help us find his replacement.”
