After studying communications, with a focus in TV and radio, at Heidelberg College, Kim worked for a small public relations firm for a short period of time. Always having a passion and love for advertising, Kim set out to work in that field and was quickly hired by WGAR 99.5 –FM (Cleveland’s Country Station).
“I was born in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania. My dad is a lifelong, diehard Pittsburgh Steelers fan. Steeler’s stuff dominates the décor in my dad’s basement and his wardrobe during football season. At first, I didn’t really like the name mean Joe advertising – I kinda liked ‘Big Pink’, ‘Pink Stiletto Advertising’, or ‘The Idea Factory’ better. But one morning, Todd got up early and typed out basically this exact ‘about us’ and even I was inspired by his passion about this particular name for our business. Plus, I knew my dad would like it.”
Kim’s creativity; hands-on approach; dedication to her clients’ success; and her desire to always over-deliver on her promises, set her apart as a seller and essentially made her a part of her clients’ marketing team.
Through Kim’s 10-year stretch with Clear Channel Communications, she also sold for WMJI 105.7-FM, WHLK 106.5-FM and The Cleveland Browns Radio Network.
