There are not many media executives who have been able to gracefully manage the transition from a media environment in which analogue forms of media such as television, radio, newspapers and print magazines were the primary ways that people got their news and enjoyed their entertainment. Some institutions and individuals have found the transition from a world where the hometown newspaper and local radio station reigned supreme to a world where these entities are facing more competition from the internet difficult to manage. But veteran radio executive Norman Pattiz is not one of those professionals.
Pattiz is known for making his mark in the world of radio where he oversaw some of the most high profile radio broadcasts in his industry.
