Jay Mitchell may well be the most successful and effective consultant you’ve never heard of. While other consultants take high-visibility roles with their client stations, Jay prefers to work quietly in the background and let the station and its people justifiably take credit for their success.
That’s the way Jay has worked with stations and groups both large and small, including KIIS (Kiss-FM) in Los Angeles, WGCI in Chicago, as well as stations in Dallas, Houston, Long Island, and many other such markets.
But Jay is equally proud of the work he has done in small and medium rated markets, including Hartford, Providence, Kansas City, Des Moines, Sioux Falls, and Rapid City – and he is especially proud of helping stations in small unrated markets like Bristol, CT; Watertown, SD; Redwing, MN; and even the tiny town of Hot Springs, SD.
And Jay is uniquely qualified to work with stations on their online presence as well. He has been involved in the Internet and web development since 1993 – or, as he likes to say, “since Al Gore invented the Internet.”
No matter what the size of the market or the scope of the assignment, Jay brings his experience and success in ownership, programming, sales, and marketing – both on the air and on the web. Even when he is retained in one specific area, the breadth of his experience and knowledge gives perspective to his counsel that is unique in the world of consulting.
