“…I’m gonna build me a boat
With these two hands
It’ll be a fair curve
From a noble plan
Let the chips fall where they will
Cause I’ve got boats to build…” – Guy Clark

The opening line of Guy Clark’s ‘Boats to Build’ :   ‘…it’s time for a change…’

Storm winds blow in any industry, the majority batten the windows and nail the hatches.

In the broadcast industry, the strong see opportunity in rough seas.

Leaders grab a hammer and build a boat, becoming sea-born captains of boats heading into a storm.

New improved boats sail from safe harbor and seek new lands.

In OUR industry, the best have already built and sailed. ·

  • When legendary industry commander Fred Jacobs sniffed digital opportunity, he seized the moment and built a boatload of opportunity
  • As DG Systems CEO John Armstrong saw his former cutting-edge  delivery system aging, he made it obsolete and crafted a NEW system
  • Seeing talent opportunity in the digital space, Steve Goldstein leaped from terrestrial radio head first into virtual content.

YOU have an idea – you dream on it every day!

Grab a hammer and get busy building your boat!
