Lincoln Financial Media Miami General Sales Manager
Watching Sam Zniber turn the ratings around and re-engineer MAGIC 102.7 was one of the high points of my entire career. Sam was obsessive where warranted, give-and-take where required, creative always, and raised the standards of everyone he touched. Sam's approach included expert engineering of the processing of the station sound, and his was the best I've heard. The station had a presence that was immediate, yet not tiring to the ear. Sam was the kind of program director a salesperson has to admire: he protected the product vigorously, but would work hard with sales to come up with ideas that not only satisfied our advertisers, but enhanced the on-air product, too. Big fan.
