Dennis Collins joined what was then Jefferson-Pilot Communications as General Sales Manager of WGBS and WLYF in 1981. He was promoted to Vice President/General Manager in 1984 and elevated to Senior VP/GM nine years later. Collins received an A.I.R. Excellence in Radio Award in 2001 and was named ‘General Manager of the Year’ by Radio Ink in 2005. His 42-year broadcasting career also includes positions with Cox Broadcasting in Dayton, OH and Philadelphia.
“Dennis is one of the most driven managers I’ve ever met,” said Don Benson, President/CEO of Lincoln Financial Media. “His passion for both the business and his people has been a benchmark trait of his exceptional career. We’re very grateful for his many contributions over the past 30 years with us.”
“Longevity in this industry is rare, but I never thought much about it until I blinked and 42 years had passed, 30 right here in Miami,” Collins said. “As I get ready to turn the page, I’m grateful to everyone who helped make this amazing run possible. It’s due mostly to the good fortune of being surrounded by the best radio pros in the business. I will miss working with all of them.”
