Brokerage/Development

Radio fact: The more people in the coverage area of a radio station, the greater the opportunity for it to make money.

In 1997, this fact was the driving force behind Edward Seeger's creation of American Media Services (AMS), LLC as a premier development company and brokerage firm for radio properties across the United States.  As President and CEO of AMS, Seeger worked to create the optimum coverage area for all client properties.  As a function of his position at AMS, Seeger also served as the Managing Member of over four dozen companies formed to own and operate radio stations in markets nationwide.  

Seeger and his development division at AMS have completed over twenty Development Scenario transactions and increased the aggregate value of 27 stations by more than $300 million. Since 2003, AMS has generated gross proceeds of more than $75 million and operating cash flow of approximately $30 million.
