CMG/Miami Market Manager Jerry Rushin to Retire
After nearly 40 years in radio, Cox Media Group (CMG) Miami VP/Market Manager Jerry Rushin has officially announced that he plans to enter retirement in July, 2012. The search for Rushin's replacement is underway, and a successor will be named in the coming weeks.
"During the course of my career, I have had the great opportunity of being mentored by many exceptional people, and, in turn, the privilege of contributing to the growth of many others," said Rushin. "My time in Miami radio has been more fulfilling than I could have imagined, and I will always carry deep respect and genuine love for those that have been part of building our brands."
He continued, "While I am sad to be leaving the day-to-day interaction with a remarkable group of people and a business I love, I am excited about this new phase of my life and the opportunity to contribute even more to the Miami community during my retirement."
Rushin began his career at WEDR Radio Communications in 1973 as "Super Jerry J," a parttime announcer. Two years later, he became the Program/Music Director and sales rep. In 1980, Rushin was offered the position of General Manager for Cox Radio's four outlets in Miami.
"I've had the great privilege of working with Jerry for more than a decade, and his commitment to the success of his stations, his people and the Miami community has been unmatched, said CMG Group VP Rich Reis. "As a leader, his tireless focus on developing talent has allowed many people to thrive and grow. Professionally, we will miss his dedication, media savvy and tireless efforts on behalf of the community." (05-02-12)
