Envision adds Brooks as affiliate director


Envision Networks has hired Valerie Brooks as the Director of Affiliate Relations. Brooks returns to radio after a stint in television sales at Gannett-owned NBC affiliate WKYC-TV in Cleveland. She began her sales career with Perry County Broadcasting’s WWJM Lexington-Zanesville.

“I have been privileged to work for both locally owned and operated, as well as publicly traded, broadcast companies,” said Brooks. “I love the subliminal power of our medium, and I know that radio plus our digital brand extensions remain vibrant, alive and impactful. I’ve been blessed to work with such great PDs as Jimmy Steel, Charlie Lake, DR, George Wolf, Dave Cooper and Dave Popovich, and so look forward to strengthening and creating new station partnerships for Envision Networks.”

“We are thrilled to welcome Valerie to the Envision family as Director of Affiliate Relations,” said Laura Orkin, COO at Envision Networks. “Valerie brings a wealth of experience to our team and will super-serve our 1,500-plus affiliated stations.”
