Salisbury-Ocean City, MD, March 31, 2021: Adams Radio of the Delmarva Peninsula has announced the retirement of Senior Account Executive James McHugh.
Jim started his radio career 41 years ago in 1980 and has served the Delmarva community his entire career. His first position was at WIBF. He joined WJWL (Now WUSX) in 1981. WUSX became part of the Adams Radio cluster in 2017. Over the years Jim added duties for WOCQ, WZBH and WGBG. He has worked for the same stations his entire career, first for Great Scott Broadcasting and then Adams.
Jim served in almost every position possible at a radio station. He began his career on air, eventually moving into sales and management. Jim acknowledged the end of his work career stating “I never once considered another position outside of radio. This business has been very good to me and my family and I have enjoyed every moment of my career. I wish my Adams family all the best and continued success. I am very much looking forward to spending more time with my wife and family.”
Ron Stone commented “Rarely these days do you find an exemplary employee like Jim McHugh. Someone that loves radio and commits their entire career to not only radio, but one cluster of stations and one community. Jim was instrumental in the transition from Great Scott to Adams Radio and his dedication and loyalty to the radio stations has been unmatched. I, and all of Adams Radio, wish Jim the very best life has to offer in his retirement. Jim, you will be missed!” Johnette Cochran, VP/GM of Adams Radio in Maryland, added “Jim McHugh is a respected colleague and pioneer in the broadcast industry, and we will miss his energy in our building”.
