Sovereign City Partners with Vallie Richards Donovan Consulting


Taking another step forward in its national syndication initiatives, Sovereign City Communications announced its partnership with Vallie-Richards-Donovan Consulting, a firm with over four decades of radio programming experience. The firm will assist Sovereign City in strategic planning, research and market analysis as the second of its innovative AC Oasis™ music programs, Great Day with Jim and Debbie™ is launched for national distribution. 

“Vallie-Richards-Donovan is the radio industry’s premier consulting firm, having been in the highly-competitive programming trenches for quite a number of years,” stated Joseph R. Giganti, Sovereign City president and COO. “We had the opportunity to meet with all of the firm’s principals — Dan Vallie, Jim Richards, Mike Donovan and Harv Blain at the recent National Association of Broadcasters convention in Austin and the synergies between our two companies were apparent from the beginning.  We are very excited to work with a group of professionals with such vision, creativity and integrity.”

“Sovereign City is a very exciting new company. A company who’s timing is perfect. The industry needs them for the content they are about to deliver — content that is innovative and differentiates from other formats while maintaining the mass appeal of the programming. Many in the industry talk about the need for new formats and variations of formats, and that’s exactly what this company is delivering,” commented Dan Vallie, founder of Vallie-Richards-Donovan Consulting.  “We are impressed with the commitment, the passion, and with the impressive line-up of industry professionals already on the team as well as the kind of leadership provided by Joe Giganti, Rob Moore, and Scott Gilreath.  We’re thrilled to be part of the team.”
