Bob Visotcky

Bob worked in the Media industry for over 30 years and has started-up and turned-around many radio stations and radio clusters nationwide. He has worked in 6 of the top ten radio markets, including Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, Dallas, Denver, and Cleveland. He also worked for two major newspapers and rebuilt and sold the Padres Radio Network for The Mighty 1090 in San Diego.


In 2006 Bob invented and sold the first night light for real estate signs called the Listinglight. The Listinglight was featured on the Big Idea with Donny Deutsch, Your Business on NBC-TV with JJ Ramberg, and Pitchmen with Billy Mays and Andrew Sullivan.


Most recently Bob is a published author of his latest book called Now What? (Real World Advice for Graduates). Bob speaks at colleges and Universities and gives them the advice they will need to navigate through the real world from goal setting, job search, negotiation, dress, networking, mentors, investing, and basically to ask the question, “If money and resources were no object, what do you want out of your life?”


Bob speaks on three topics (Now What?) for Colleges and Universities, Effective Leadership(Corporations) and Start-Ups and Turn-Around Strategies.

Effective Leadership


If you want the keys to be an effective, successful leader, Bob will give you all his tips he learned during his 30+ years in executive media management. Bob inspires his people to maximize their potential, he creates a family atmosphere at all the radio stations he ran and showed compassion to his people, his listeners, and his advertisers. Relationships will never go out of style, and he has created hundreds if not thousands during his career in radio, print, TV, and Digital. Bob will point out most mistakes managers make and show easy fixes.


















Start-ups and Turnarounds Strategies

In 2006 Bob asked the question, why real estate signs weren’t lit up at night, so he did his research and created the Listinglight which was Realtor’s Magazine top tech invention in 2007.


As far as startups go, ask yourself what hole are you trying to fill in the marketplace? What is missing that needs to be invented, test your product before you go to market, what price will the market bare, distribution channels, don’t market until everything is perfect. Bob takes you on a journey from concept to marketplace and believe me, you’ll make a lot of mistakes if you don’t take his advice.


Turnarounds are basically figuring out what isn’t working and then fixing it. It sounds simple and can be, but you must be able to take bold steps and figure out what your customers like, not what you like. Flexibility is crucial, timely decisions, people moves etc. Bob tells a story on how he turned around a radio station in San Francisco and defeated his competitor in eighteen months! His competitor couldn’t beat him, so they bought him!
