Kim Shuck - Director of Client Relations - Kim’s love of media and broadcasting is literally in her blood; her father was a popular on air talent in Michigan, and while working in radio herself, she met her husband at the very radio station her father worked for when she was a little girl.

Which has been home for over 30 years. From those experiences, Kim has learned how to work with every size client and budget you can imagine.
