60 years ago on December 2, 1961, our late company Founder George G. Beasley launched his first radio station, WPYB-AM in Benson, North Carolina. Today, Beasley Media Group consists of 62 radio stations, digital operations and an esports division located across the United States.
“Our Dad’s commitment to our employees, communities we serve, and the industry was unparalleled and continues to serve as a shining example to all of us as to what is possible through humility, passion and hard work,” said Chief Executive Officer Caroline Beasley. “We are so very proud to continue his vision and pioneering spirit well into the future.”
So to celebrate, The Mike & Carla Morning Show talked to Caroline Beasley, about what it was like growing up in the “radio” business, from where it started to where it is now. Most importantly, why radio was so important to her father George and continues to be for the Beasley Family!
