Marc Kaye’s radio career began in 1973, after graduating cum laude from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. Marc joined Susquehanna Broadcasting’s WGBB Long Island, as an account executive. Marc was promoted from A/E to Local Sales Manager, to General Sales Manager, and then to General Manager.
At the same time his sales career was beginning, he held on to his sports broadcaster dreams by working as the radio voice of the St. John’s University Redmen, and worked for the brand new (at the time) cable sports channel, ESPN.
In 1981, he moved to St. Petersburg, Florida as General Sales Manager of Harte-Hanks news operation, WNSI. He then transferred as Sales Manager to WRBQ, the infamous Q105, home of the original QZ00.
In 1983, Marc moved into Westinghouse’s KODA in Houston. Later that year, Pete Schulte, Kaye’s old boss in Tampa, came calling and persuaded Marc to move across the street to Gannett’s KKBQ. This began a 15-year career with Gannett Co. Inc., which included GSM in Houston at KKBQ, GM of KNUA in Seattle, GM of WUSA Tampa on two separate occasions, and President/GM of KIIS Los Angeles.
In December of 1996, Jacor Broadcasting bought WUSA Tampa and decided to throw Marc out with the bathwater. After four months of r&r, Marc teamed up with Sandusky Radio to manage Sandusky’s five-station cluster in Seattle made up of KQMV-FM, KIXI-AM, KVRQ-FM, KKNW-AM and KRWM-FM.
