He bought WBEV and WXRO in Beaver Dam, WI when he was in his 20s. Both of those stations are top notch local stations to this day.
He owns ESPN Madison (WTLX, 100.5)
About a decade ago, he grew Milwaukee’s only Sports station (1510 WAUK) and eventually expanded it to 24 Hours by buying 540 WRRD from Salem.
Last year he bought WTMJ Milwaukee and it’s Country sister 94.5 WKTI. WKTI went to ESPN, with an all live and local lineup during the day (WMVP is much like this)
He has a huge passion for Sports radio. WMVP is in good hands as far as it’s format is concerned.
If you want someone to run your ESPN affiliate, Craig Karmazin is the guy. Seriously.
