Radio Campaign Manager
Dave Purdy, whose smooth voice reveals his background as an on-air radio personality, is our Radio Campaign Manager, booking clients on talk radio shows across North America. Dave, a U.S. Navy veteran, is a natural fit for the job. He got his start in broadcast at WGUL, a small radio station in the Tampa Bay area, while he was still working on his bachelor’s degree in mass communications from the University of South Florida. Dave later left the station for an opportunity at another Tampa Bay area radio station and went on to work for Metro Networks as a traffic reporter and eventually a news anchor.
Although he always had a love for radio, Dave was ready for a new challenge when he was offered a job with BellSouth (later bought by AT&T) to become a media consultant for Tampa Bay businesses. He sold Yellow Pages ads as well as digital media. But after being out of radio for more than 10 years, his old broadcast roots beckoned and Dave took a part-time position as a news anchor at NewsRadio 970 WFLA in Tampa. During this time Dave also had full-time sales positions at companies such as Web.com and iHeartRadio.
