Marketing Director at WPLR and WYBC Dies
For over 30 years, Sam Tilery was a major part of the Connoisseur radio stations in Connecticut. WPLR PD Keith Dakin told Radio Ink last night, "He knew and was loved by everyone in the New Haven community. He was always there with a smile, a kind word and was one of the most loyal employees I've ever come across. He treated WPLR like a member of his family. It is a tremendous loss to the station as well as Connecticut."
Market Manager Kristin Okesson said WPLR & WYBC has lost a marketing visionary and passionate radio professional, and we have lost an amazing human being. "We have been fortunate enough to know and work with Sam for many years. He was a dear friend, wonderful person, and devoted family man, and he will be sorely missed. Sam leaves us as a legend on the streets of New Haven, where his mission was to give back to the community that he served. Sam understood the importance of taking these big brands and using them to do great work, not only for the company, but for the community at large. His spirit will forever be part of the foundation of WPLR and WYBC, everyone in our building, and for those fortunate enough to work with him. No words can adequately express our sadness at Sam’s passing or our gratitude for all of the work he did for people over the course of his career. We can honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to continuing the work he was so passionate about."

Website visitors do not come easy these days. It's hard and it usually takes a long time. In many cases, too much time. So much that you might be ready to call it quits. A friend of mine shared a website traffic service with me on my site and I want to share it with you. I was skeptical at first but I tried the free trial period and it turns out they are able to get hundreds of visitors to anyones website every day. My sales revenue has increased tenfold.

This very sad news made it here to Oregon. So, so sad to hear. I loved Sam... always good to me during my five years at the station, always working hard, and most importantly, ALWAYS REAL. Dammit. He was my favorite person at the station. Sam left a mark on many people's hearts. I will never forget that smile... that laugh. We've lost one of the truly good ones.
