"If I were in charge, there's no way I'd do it this way."
Face it, you've heard that voice in your head too much in the last few months. You're a natural leader who isn't afraid to write a strategic plan for your business unit and then execute it. But in today's world of RVPs and SVPs, you're not really leading. You’re mostly managing and marching to the orders of someone who has a bigger title on their business card. You're just marching along until the next great opportunity comes along where you can showcase your talents and experience.
If this sums up your situation and you're ready to lead a group of radio stations with real ownership growth opportunities, Mid-West Family Broadcasting in Springfield, IL wants to visit with you about our General Manager position.
With 4 great radio stations including legendary WMAY and WNNS, MWF in Springfield needs a take charge leader that will create and nurture customers on a daily basis to drive long-term revenue growth.
This is a real General Manager position.
You'll be making decisions about the business on a daily basis. It's your ship and you'll report to a board of directors. No market managers or RVPs are hidden within our ranks.
Our next general manager will immerse themselves into the community and spend time engaged with the local chambers of commerce and other influential local organizations. Our next general manager will get the right people onto the bus and put them in the right seats. Our next general manager will have a solid understanding of small business management, accounting principles, and daily cash management in relation to accounts payable, payroll, and accounts receivable. Our next general manager will have a solid profit orientation. Our next general manager will have a unique understanding of radio programming structure and brand management. Our next general manager will understand how to distribute our brands via all the digital and event avenues available to us today.
Our next general manager will have a demonstrated ability to collaborate within teams and grow colleagues’ professional careers while being level-headed and patient with a long view of the industry and business. Our next GM will have documented leadership experience and work intensity. Our next general manager will have a high "mission" about the future of the company and be natural at coaching, developing, and nurturing relationships internally and externally.
Our next general manager may be a local sales manager today and ready to take the leap to ownership. It could also be a Senior AE with leadership skills or a business manager hidden within a media company. Our next general manager will have the chance to purchase equity in the company as we’re built like a law firm or accounting firm with partners who own the operation. And, all the partners are employees or retired employees – there are no outsiders or equity firms – it’s us.
Springfield, IL is a great community that is a state capital with a solid local workforce that is not subject to the cyclical nature of many economies. It’s your chance to get involved in a community and make a difference for your neighbors by owning and operating a local business. You’ll get to know Honest Abe and enjoy a microbrew at Obed and Isaac’s.
