More About Mike Shepard
Most of you are probably familiar with Mike and his work. He has a rich background in all formats, with a specialty in Country, Sports Talk and Classic Hits.
He’s also well known for identifying and developing great air talent, including Jack Diamond, Tony and Kris, Scott Kaplan, Bert, Rich “Brother” Robbin, Jack Murphy, Lee “Hacksaw” Hamilton and more.
I’ve competed against Mike in San Diego. He led legendary Country powerhouse KSON to their highest ratings ever, built AC KIFM and led Sports Talk Mighty 1090 and Classic Hits MAX FM to great success. Take it from me: You want Mike on your team, not working against him.
If that’s not enough, Mike is one of radio’s most accomplished research experts. He will continue to own and opted Shepard Media Research. His expertise and background in the this area (perceptual research, focus groups, music tests) expands the services we can offer clients.
