The Boss You Remember

What are the characteristics of a boss that you remember? Care to share?

Wish I had thought of this: The Bosses We Remember

  • provided safe space to grow
  • opened career doors
  • defended us when we needed it
  • recognized and rewarded us
  • developed us as leaders
  • inspired us to stretch higher
  • led by example
  • told us our work mattered
  • forgave us when we made mistakes

but it came from Farbod Saraf.

And the Boss I remember for these qualities is Steve Keeney, former GM at CBS Radio, Viacom Radio and Jeff-Pilot Radio.

All I owe you, Steve, is my career.


Doug is a former Major Market award winning Program Director of the Year. He was VP of Programming for one of the first large consolidated radio companies before leaving to open his consultancy. He works with most of the largest media companies in the world but, uniquely, he consults every adult format, including News/Talk, where his stations have won the distinguished Edward R. Murrow Award for excellence in journalism. Doug helped NOSTALGIE, an OLDIES-based station in Paris, become the fastest-growing radio station in French history. His American clients include one you can hear this week, MIX 92.9

Also uniquely, Doug limits his client list to 8 per year so that each gets virtually unlimited market access. Doug is a former missionary kid, has been married to his wife, Shannon, for 38 years, and has one adult son and a wheaten terrier dog, all of whom currently live in Denver.
