Bill Conners Speaks with JDM Students

On Thursday, Bill Conners from iHeartMedia visited with JDM students. He spoke about his 30+ years in radio production and offered advice to those interested in the media industry. Bill provided interesting insight on being creative when writing promos and commercial spots. He also let the class listen to some examples of his work for WGAR and WMJI in Cleveland.

Bill Conners graduated from the Ohio School of Broadcasting Master Program in 1982. He was hired at 1220 WGAR in 1981 as a part-time engineer. In 1984, Bill was promoted to producer for Paul Tapie morning show on 1220 WGAR. In 1986, he became Production Director for WGAR AM/FM. Since 2006, Bill has been the Creative Services Director for WMJI, in addition to WGAR. He's responsible for writing copy to promote station events, writing and voicing commercials and promotions via social media and new technologies.

Thank you, Mr. Conners, for taking the time to meet with our students!
