In November we announced that John Hare, ABC Radio Division President, would be the "dis" honored guest at the 17th Annual Bayliss Radio Roast, to be held March 13, 2003, at The Pierre Hotel in New York City.

Many of you promptly emailed to say that you whole-heartedly approved of his selection.   Thank you for taking the time to send us a response! 
We are thrilled, too, and anticipate that the next Radio Roast will be as memorable as last year's Roast of Stu Olds, Katz Media Group President.

Last year's Radio Roast participants:
Back Row: Ron Ruth, RAB; Bill Stakelin, Regent Communications; Don Bouloukos, Infinity Broadcasting.
Front Row: David Crowl, Clear Channel Communications; Carl Butrum, Katz Media Group; and Stu Olds.

I am happy to announce the names of the gentlemen who will share the roasting duties in March.  The distinguished panel of broadcasters prepared to make John Hare squirm in the Bayliss hot seat include: Don Bouloukos; Mitch Dolan, ABC Radio Station Group; Hal Jay, WBAP Radio; and Stu Olds, no doubt ready to continue where he left off last year.  With Regent Communications President Bill Stakelin returning as our Master of Ceremonies, it promises to be a very entertaining line-up!

Details about the Radio Roast may be found on our website, or please call our office in California.  We hope to see you at the Radio Roast!
