The Mike Harvey Show

timthumbMeet Mike

With his extensive experience in all phases of the radio industry, Mike Harvey knows what it takes to make a radio station successful and profitable! His uncanny ability to be ahead of radio trends manifests itself in his tireless devotion to helping stations succeed.

On-Air Personality

He’s lived it, defined it, and perfected it into an art form as a role- model and mentor to many professional on-air talents in the business today!

Program Director

Mike is the only three-time winner of Billboard Magazine’s “Major Market Program Director of the Year” Award and his stations have won the Billboard “Station of the Year” an unprecedented four times!

General Manager, Corporate Executive, and Station Owner

Years of experience “behind the desk” have made him keenly aware of what it takes to develop the “bottom line.” Not content with merely performing and programming, Mike became a “turnaround” specialist for ailing stations in medium and major markets, and, as General Manager, created top-rated performers in a variety of formats like 3WS – Pittsburgh, KSOL – San Francisco, WHAM – Rochester, and WFTL – Ft. Lauderdale.

Pioneer

In the 80’s, Mike joined legendary research specialist Bill Moyes in creating the Transtar Radio Networks … the FIRST satellite-delivered programming service in the world!  As Vice President of Programming and Operations, Mike designed, built and managed the network’s formats which still operate today under the banner of the Dial-Global Radio Networks. While running Transtar in Los Angeles, Mike launched “SuperGold Saturday Night”, which quickly became America’s favorite syndicated weekend show. Over the past 20+ years, Mike has evolved the presentation and music format and extended the winning concept to 6 nights a week as “The Mike Harvey Shows.”

Innovator

Recognizing the current economic trend by many stations to abandon competitive night-time programming by resorting to voice-tracking or total automation, Mike continues to dedicate himself to radio’s success! How? By designing a completely unique Daily show, Mike draws audiences back to local radio with the fully customized “The Mike Harvey Show.” Weaving his magic as a pioneer and innovator, this new LIVE LOCAL show is the “buzz” among classic hits, oldies, and AC stations!
