Sandi: 
What did you do before becoming a media broker?

Miller:  I started in broadcasting in 1966, working my way through college: everything from cleaning the coffee pot, to DJ, news, and sales. I finished the BA and MA degrees while working for various radio and TV stations in the Fresno and Santa Maria markets in California. I managed several cable TV systems in California, and then did mergers and acquisitions work for a Denver-based cable TV company.  In 1989, my wife and I started consulting and brokering and our company name says it all: MCH: Miracles Can Happen. Twenty-four years and we are still in business. Along the way we also owned our own radio stations in California and Washington, which we think gives us a unique skill-set when working with owners, sellers, and buyers.

Sandi:  What did you do before becoming a media broker?

Gardiner:  My career in radio began in 1956 as a part time weekend announcer at an Alf Landon-owned station in Liberal, Kansas.  That led to a morning DJ slot at a new AM station in Alva, Oklahoma, where I attended my first two years of college.  I also had an opportunity to work with the consulting engineer on the construction of the four-tower antenna system, including the pattern calculations (using a slide rule!).  After a couple of years I migrated to Oklahoma City and a DJ spot at KOCY, then the only rock station in the market.  Starting with the overnight shift, I graduated to afternoon drive time on the station with about 85% of the audience out of 13 stations.

While at KOMA, I applied for a construction permit for a new AM in Liberal, Kansas, built and launched it, and sold it to a local businessman.  Then back to Oklahoma City and on to a sales slot at the Storz Broadcasting station, KOMA AM.

Sandi:  What did you do before becoming a media broker?

Dave:  I spent many years in radio grunt work… on air, sales, etc.   My first paid non-college broadcast job was as a photographer for a TV network affiliate and I really got bit hard by the radio bug by hanging out with the folks on the radio side.   I now say I have done every job at a station from sweeping the floors to being an owner.
