Good Karma Brands/Milwaukee Vice President and Market Manager Steve Wexler will wrap up his 35-year management career and transition into a coaching and development role at the company. Executive Vice President Emily Dillinger will assume the role of interim Market Manager for GKB's three stations in Milwaukee, including 101.7 The Truth, ESPN Milwaukee and Newsradio 620 WTMJ.

"We are appreciative and grateful Steve "Wex" joined Good Karma to lead the Milwaukee team through a time of significant growth and transition," said Good Karma Brands founder and CEO Craig Karmazin. "His passion for local news and his community-focused approach to broadcasting and media led the team through a pandemic, the launch of a new station, and award-winning coverage of so many significant moments of the past several years. We're looking forward to continuing to learn from his knowledge and leadership expertise as he moves into a coaching role within the GKB Home Office."

Wexler commented, "I'm looking forward to tapping into my experiences and many lessons learned to help our content, sales and management teammates continue to grow their skills and knowledge. I'm very grateful to Craig for the opportunity to do what I do best and what I enjoy most which is spending time coaching and developing our team."

Wexler led the sale of the 36-station, 8-market Scripps Radio Group in late 2018 to several broadcast companies, including GKB in Milwaukee, where he assumed the role of Market Manager in 2019. He began his broadcast career at WTMJ in Milwaukee as an intern and has been an air personality, program manager and radio & television general manager before running the radio division for Journal Communications, which merged with Scripps in 2018.

"This is a great fit for me, and I can't wait to get started," added Wexler. "We are blessed with an amazing team, and I look forward to contributing to our success."
