Armada commodore takes a coffee break


Armada Media Corp. Chairman Jim Coursolle has decided to step down to go into the coffee business with his daughter in Chicago. That would be a considerably larger market than the type targeted by the relatively youthful radio group with the well-seasoned veteran staff. Armada will continue to focus on strong local service in small markets with people like Terry Shockley, Chris Bernier and John Lynch, who helped start the group along with former Wisconsin governor and Republican presidential candidate Tommy Thompson. Coursolle says he wishes the company nothing but success — no doubt because he remains a major shareholder.
