Dr. Tom Becker Bio, continued
In the Tri-Cities, KALE scored a 100 ratings share (a feat never before or since achieved by any radio station). In Eugene, OR, SRO’s KASH became a dominate #1 even while at 1600 on the AM dial...a dial position that isn’t listed on most radios. Ultimately, all nine SRO stations hit first place ratings in their target demographics.
In October of 1976, I joined San Diego’s Tuesday Productions as Vice President of its Broadcast Division. Between 1976 and 1984 Tuesday became the largest producer of musical IDs and promotional campaigns for Radio and Television in the world, with offices in San Diego, New York, Edmonton and Sydney. At its peak in 1983, Tuesday’s music could be heard every few seconds on a radio or television station somewhere in the world.
In March of 1984, I formed Silvertree Inc., a San Diego based Creative Services firm with clients worldwide. Silvertree has been the recipient of Clio, Addy, Silver Mike, Sunny, IBA and Homburg awards for creative and production excellence. I serve as Silvertree’s President and Creative Director and function as a freelance Creative Director/Copywriter/Producer for advertisers and Ad Agencies.
I am a past President and Chairman of the San Diego Ad Club, Founding President of the Association for Independent Radio Producers, 3-Time President of the San Diego Advertising Golf Association, Board member of the San Diego Variety Club, a member of the San Diego Production Association and the United Way Marketing Committee.
I was recently appointed Chairman of the Better Business Bureau’s Ethics in Advertising Committee. I have performed as a writer and/or voice talent on hundreds of radio and television commercials and serve as live announcer for a variety of events including the World and National Aerobic Championships (1989-Present) and the PGA’s Buick Invitational Golf Tournament (1987-Present).
My greatest accomplishment... 3 amazing kids and 6 energetic grandkids.
