Jim Robinson, President/Founder
Jim Robinson began his programming career at Rock station KGON/Portland in the late 70's. His team's implementation and localization of the "Superstars" rock format launched the station to unprecedented ratings and revenue advancement. In
1981, his success as Music Director and Afternoon Drive Talent at KSJO/San Jose earned him the Program Director title at KZOK/Seattle where he challenged and decimated rock leader KISW.
His career in the 80's took him to Baltimore where he launched WGRX, an early pioneer of the now widespread AAA format. In San Antonio, he led Adult Contemporary KMMX to dominate the AC arena there.
In 1990, Robinson took on the Smooth Jazz format in Tampa at WHVE for Susquehanna, and when The Wave was acquired by Paxson Broadcasting later that year, he was invited to stay and design the station's Rock AC product, WHPT. The Point debuted in the Top 5 and Robinson was courted away to The Twin Cities to lead AAA KTCZ/Minneapolis to a ratings record that has yet to be attained since fall 1992. Cities 97 earned various awards in local publications for Best Station of the Year.
He spent the late 90's in record promotion with Midwest Music Alliance and his own company, Jim Robinson Promotions, where he was one of AAA music's primary promotional voices.
At the turn of the millennium, he returned to radio at CBS Modern AC KAMX/Austin, Texas. There, he honed his skills, learned to program to female demographics and consistently kept the station competitive in one of America's premier music markets. He was named Hot AC Programmer of the Year in 2000 and Mix 94.7 was named Hot AC Station of the Year in 2000 and 2001 by The Gavin Report.
After a brief stint at Entercom Sacramento's Alternative KWOD, Robinson decided it was time to leave terrestrial radio behind and pursue his vision of pervasive Internet radio. He formed Radio Brandcasting, Inc. where he builds exclusively branded Internet radio stations for high profile companies.
