One of the nation’s most respected communications law practitioners got his start in the industry, as did many other radio professionals, by spending more time at his St. Louis University college radio station than in classes.
Between college and his first job as a FCC lawyer, John F. Garziglia’s love for radio translated to on-air roles at stations in St. Louis and in Washington, D.C., where he also
served as a program director.
This provided a foundation for helping broadcasters with legal advice and acting as a
conduit between the FCC and the AM and FM stations it regulates. Now, Garziglia is days away from retirement.
