It’s my pleasure to provide this letter of recommendation for James Steel as he seeks employment in the broadcast industry with your company. As James’s Corporate Executive Vice President of Content at Alpha Media, I’ve worked closely with him over the past four years, sharing many creative ideas and promo copy lines. James showed excellent communication skills and consistently exceeded Alpha's expectations. On a personal level, he’s charismatic and well-spoken, both qualities that have served him well in his role as APD, production imager and on-air talent.
First, James brought great value to Alpha by consistently exceeding expectations and ratings. James has an understanding of market trends and instincts for identifying and pursuing great promotional ideas.
Second, James has a very strong grasp of technology. He knows automation software inside and out and helps drive social media on all the radio station platforms.
Finally, James has proven himself to be a strong cultural fit here at Alpha Media. He’s always ready to lend a helping hand to his teammates and contributes during brainstorming sessions and meetings between the sales and programming teams.
In closing, I’d like to restate my strong support for James’s application for any programming, production on an on-air role. I’m confident that he will surpass your expectations in this new role. James is driven, self-confident, proactively helpful, and smart, and I know he will continue to find success in Media or Broadcast Radio. Please feel free to contact me at Scott@alphamediausa.com with any other questions. Thank you for your time.
