About The Coach – Sam Weaver

As a personal trainer (Coach), I work with air personalities, OMs, and PDs at various career levels, beginners and industry veterans; CHR/Top 40, Talk Radio, Urban AC, Country radio, Christian radio, Mainstream urban, News radio, AC radio, Hip-Hop radio, Rock radio, CHR rhythmic, Gospel radio, and Classic rock radio. I work with terrestrial/traditional stations, online/Internet radio, and podcasters.

I have spent my career analyzing various aspects of announcing and programming. Radio is a constant learning process, as a coach I help my clients to stay on top of their game or show some how to get in the game. If you are willing to be open, patient, focused, take direction, and have a thick skin, you are ready for us to work together.

Throughout history the most successful people have been the ones that have envisioned their success and acted upon those dreams and goals. If you believe in yourself and are ready to invest in your career, email or call me and we can begin our work together.
