“Axia and Cumulus Chicago Have Come Together”

Jim Armstrong (Telos) and Dave Kerstin (BGS) will present the Axia system and discuss how the Cumulus Chicago facility came together.  Then, Patrick J. Berger (Cumulus) will hold a Q&A session, followed by small-group tours of the Cumulus facility.

Armstrongs’ first radio gig was morning drive at WESX in Salem, Massachusetts.  After spending 15 years at such well-known stations as Boston's WEEI and with Metro Networks on WBZ-AM/TV, his early love of audio technology reasserted itself.  He held sales management positions at Burk, Gentner, Klotz, and SAS before joining Telos/Omnia/Axia.  Jim now lives in Atlanta.


Non-members are invited to attend this meeting.
