Sandi: What did you do before becoming a media broker?
Sherwood: I am a broadcaster. I started out as an announcer in 1947 and went from WWXL Peoria Illinois to WMCA New York. I was there to help usher in the beginning of Rock and Roll. Following that (immediately before brokering) I became a General Manager of radio stations, and stockholder in some, including Brattleboro, VT (WTSA) Portland, Me (WLOB) and Albany, NY (WTRY). Other stations that I managed and/or held stock included WNHC, New Haven, CT; WMEE /WMEF Ft. Wayne, IN (plus others in the group); WIBG, Philadelphia; and WMAQ/WKQX, Chicago, for NBC.
