“Mitch is highly-respected in the media industry and, whether in New York City, where he operated stations directly, or in the ABC major markets he lead across the U.S. - his outstanding track-record of achievement was defined by his ability to consistently out-perform the companies and stations with whom he competed.  Ed’s distinguished career is highlighted by his oversight and successful execution of a number of complex M&A transactions while serving on the senior leadership team of one of America’s finest and most admired media companies.  He’s well-known and respected in our industry as a leader.  Ed’s depth of experience in the media space is beyond impressive.”

“Throughout my career I’ve had the special privilege of being part of extraordinary companies where the only thing as highly-valued as performance were the people who achieved it. I got to know Tom when he was the GM of WGN and ABC’s toughest competitor in Chicago.” states Dolan.

“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to join the Great Lakes Media team. I look forward partnering with Tom, Mitch and the team to acquire and grow local radio stations and digital platforms.” says Nolan.  “We’re committed to creating an organization that super-serves its local communities, delivers outstanding results for our advertising partners and fosters a workplace culture that makes Great Lakes Media a career destination.
