Radio Ink Names WHUR’s GM Jim Watkins Among Best Managers of 2017

We’re excited to announce Radio Ink, a top radio-industry trade publication, has named WHUR‘s General Manager Jim Watkins as one of the BEST managers of 2017. This isn’t news to us but we’re honored to have a leading publication acknowledge this as well.

As General Manager, Watkins has lead his team to win multiple Marconi Awards, Service to America Awards, and the prestigious NYF’s International Radio Program Awards for their original satellite radio programs Blues on Blues for Best Regularly Scheduled Music Program and InnerView for Best Talk/Interview Special.

“Watkins is credited with building WHUR, 46 years ago. He’s not only the General Manager of this top tier heritage radio station, but also been a mentor to some of the industry’s most notable radio personalities and executives,” Radio Ink reports.

When asked how he was able to achieve such success, Watkins credits his team.

“My success is firmly based on the team of individuals, and their collective talents, that I have worked with all these years. Teamwork provides the input, ideas, and diverse viewpoints necessary to successfully complete the multitude of projects we face in this industry.”


Radio Ink’s complete list of top managers will be released October 9.
