Michael Damsky has spent most of his 32-year radio career so far at two of Chicago's legendary radio stations. Following a stretch of more than two decades that saw him rise from an account executive at WXRT to that station's general manager, Damsky became WLS-AM/FM director of sales, and then eventually president/market manager.
On Tuesday (when he'll attend RAIN Summit Dallas), Damsky will offcially assume his new role as AccuRadio Executive Vice President of Sales.
"It is our belief that AccuRadio, with its fully built-out platform for personalizable music channels, is well positioned to take a significantly increased share of this fast-growing market," AccuRadio founder/CEO (and RAIN publisher) Kurt Hanson said today. "With his proven ability to build a sales organization, Michael will help provide the increased revenue which we expect to fuel AccuRadio’s growth."
"I am excited to be joining AccuRadio — a pioneering provider of personalizable streaming Internet radio," Damsky said. "I couldn’t pass-up the chance to help grow AccuRadio into a leadership position in what is clearly the most rapidly expanding sector of music listening."
