Tim Wilson
As a New Media scholar, historian and broadcast veteran Tim brings a unique set of skills to WADL and its clients. Tim began his broadcast career as a National Account Executive with Eastman Radio in Chicago where he was welcomed with the words “Be Fabulous or Be Gone!” Tired of the brutal Chicago winters, Tim returned to Detroit and started a career in local sales beginning with WWJ, Buckley Radio, CKLW, WJLB, WXYT/WMXD, WJZZ/WCHB, and CIMX/CIDR/CKWW/CKLW. Looking for something new and exciting Tim became a Major Account Executive with Skytel where he became the “go to guy”. After Skytel closed its Detroit office Tim became Director of Corporate Marketing at Detroit Public Television where his creative pragmatism led his team to record sales figures. After a brief stint heading up sales

for WNED in Toronto, Tim realized he actually missed Michigan and returned home where he enrolled at Wayne State and earned a graduate degree in New Media and Communications. Hoping to apply these new skills, Tim became General Sales Manager for Next Media Group in Saginaw. Once again Tim missed Detroit.  Some old friends led him to WADL where he is responsible for driving local revenue.
Tim believes that WADL offers the community unique opportunities. How many cities have a truly independent broadcast television station that encourages local video productions? With his background in urban radio, Tim is ideally suited for leading WADL’s commitment to serve Detroit’s urban community.
