George Laughlin

Hello, I’m George. Husband, Father, Son, and Entrepreneur.

I've been in the radio industry since the days I left LSU. Starting first as a sales person for the legendary KHKS 106.1 KISSFM in Dallas, TX. I enjoy working with great time to create and grow a variety of creative companies.

On a personal level, I've been married for 23 years to my amazing wife, Stephanie, and we've been blessed with 3 smart and talented kids, Gracie, Ashley, and Preston. I enjoy playing bocce, shuffleboard and collecting sports memorabilia.

Current and Former Companies

The Kidd Kraddick Morning Show

The Kidd Kraddick Morning Show continues to reign as one of the top syndicated show for Top 40 and Hot AC stations. Celebrating 20 years of syndication this year! My relationship with Kidd Kraddick went back to my KISSFM days and was sadly cut short by his passing in 2013.

Tino Cochino Radio

Tino Cochino is a talent that we took from having a great local show in Phoenix, to syndicating in more than 50 markets today. I’m very proud of what Tino has accomplished in such a short period of time and am excited for his future in media.

The Infinite Agency

They were an agency of just a handful of people, along with several freelancers, but tons of talent. We were able to give them the guidance and the resources needed to grow into one of the top agencies in Dallas. Current and past clients include: Anheuser-Busch, Caesar’s Entertainment, ESPN, Direct Energy, Raising Cane’s, PepsiCo, Pizza Hut, Hendrick Automotive, Dallas Mavericks, Status Jet, Carter BloodCare, and many more.

YEA Podcasts

A natural extension of radio, Podcasting has been exploding over the last few years. What began as a few podcasts from our syndicated personalities has grown into a platform with dozens of shows in which we handle sales, production, marketing and distribution.

GAP Broadcasting

In 2007, I raised more than $100 million to launch GAP Broadcasting with Oaktree Capital and acquired more than 100 radio stations in small markets throughout the country. It was a pleasure working with so many talented broadcasters that I still keep in touch with today. Townsquare Media acquired GAP in 2010 and I stayed on as a Senior Vice President.
