There are very few scenarios in radio that haven’t been done many time before, but YEA Networks CEO George Laughlin encountered a challenge that hardly anyone ever overcame when in 2013, Kidd Kraddick suddenly passed away, leaving his highly successful morning show in the lurch. Yet Laughlin and the talent cast members of the show were able to not only keep the show afloat, but make it more successful.
“Tino is a brilliant talent who is the next generation in syndication and a great addition to the YEA Networks family,” YEA Networks president/CEO George Laughlin said. “The Tino Cochino Radio team is more than just entertaining – they share their energy, fun and personal passions with listeners and people feel like they know them and want to be friends with them. That’s a special quality, and it’s something we’re thrilled to bring to markets across the country.”
George Laughlin, Chief Executive Officer, YEA Networks, said: “I’ve had the privilege of working with Shawn for more than 20 years. He is a trusted advisor and a highly effective leader, who has been essential to the incredible growth and expansion of the company over the past three years. Under his leadership, YEA Networks will continue to deliver the highest quality products and services to the audio industry.”
