President and Chief Executive Officer
In his 40+ year radio career, Mr. Sumpter has been a disc jockey, program director, general manager, group executive vice president and consultant to some of the largest broadcast groups in the country. He has been partnered in station ownership and even hosted a nationally syndicated talk show for more than a decade.
As a program director, he holds the distinction of attaining the highest ratings in the history of every station he’s been affiliated with. As a manager, Jim’s stations were consistent ratings leaders and top billing broadcast properties.
A serial entrepreneur, Jim founded a cutting-edge, web-based marketing and sales promotion agency and was instrumental in developing a suite of software systems that generated customized radio station playlists, produced audience estimates, and tracked music research that were utilized by some of the largest broadcast groups in the country, as well as at radio stations worldwide.
In his position with USA Media Properties, he oversees all aspects of the companies’ operations.
Jim has four grown children and between his wife, Janet (below) and their yours-and-mine blended families, they have 18 grandchildren. With what spare time is left, Jim enjoys surfing, fishing, golfing, and motorcycling.
