“This journey began almost fourteen years ago when Jeff Warshaw and CFO Mike Driscoll gave me the opportunity to help build multiple markets from just construction permits. And now I’m in the very rare position to be able to launch my new media company, by purchasing from these exceptional broadcasters, six radio stations I’ve helped to create. I’m forever grateful for this incredible time with Connoisseur Media and the constant mentoring they’ve provided. With this first acquisition, Desert Mountain Broadcasting launches today on a solid foundation, built upon the values and best practices embedded in me by Jeff, Mike and COO David Bevins”, said Cam Maxwell, CEO of Desert Mountain Broadcasting.
“It is an honor and a pleasure to give Cam the opportunity to purchase these terrific stations. He has done an amazing job building them up and making the operation an integral part of the Billings area. Cam is a dedicated broadcaster, and we are excited to watch him soar”, said Jeff Warshaw, CEO of Connoisseur Media.
