Small Market Radio Candidate

Alec Creighton | Owner/General Manager | Northeast Colorado Broadcasting

Bio & History
After a dozen years in the community banking business, Alec and Christie Creighton purchased Northeast Colorado Broadcasting based in Fort Morgan and Sterling in 2003 which was a three radio station group at the time and has grown to seven stations. In 2017 they purchased KNAB (AM) and KNAB-FM in Burlington from the estate of longtime Colorado broadcaster Bette Bailly. Both Alec and Christie are active in the day-to-day operations of the stations.

The flagship station of Northeast Colorado Broadcasting is "Farm Radio" 1010 KSIR known for its coverage of agriculture news and issues in Northeast Colorado. Other stations have a variety of formats and local information to serve the rural communities in Eastern Colorado, including the only Spanish language radio station in the area.

All of the stations in the group actively participate in community events, local chambers of commerce, youth initiatives and economic development efforts. Company stations have won numerous CBA Awards of Excellence, CBA Radio Station of the Year on five occasions, and have been recognized locally with awards including Business of the Year. Alec has served on several local boards and is active in community service clubs and has taken his turn as president multiple times.

Reason for Running
Our stations have always been CBA members and supportive of CBA efforts to serve and advocate for our industry. The last two years I have participated on the Colorado State Emergency Communication Committee (SECC) representing small-market radio interests, which has increased my interest in the role CBA plays overall. There are several issues challenging our industry such as availability of radio receivers, music licensing fees, (unfunded) regulatory requirements, changing technology, etc. and issues that affect small businesses, not just broadcasters. With my industry experience and business background, I think I can be an effective advocate for small-market radio broadcasters as the CBA board addresses these and other important issues facing broadcasters.

Medium Market Radio Incumbent Candidate

Wayne Johnson | Owner/GM | Media Logic Radio

Bio & History
I have owned and operated Media Logic Radio since 2002. What began as an AM/FM combination has grown into a 7-station group with 4 FM and 3 AM stations. I began my broadcast career as a part time play by play broadcaster for a group of stations in Garden City Kansas and purchased my first radio station in 1996.

I am blessed to have my 2 daughters work with me in this wonderful business and I hope to slowly transition out and let them take over all day to day operations in the next five or six years.

Reason for Running
I"m passionate about our broadcast business and having served for many years on the CBA board it is very rewarding to help Colorado"s broadcast industry keep moving forward.

Major Market Radio Incumbent Candidate

Lindsay Salazar | President | Greeley Broadcasting Corporation

Bio & History
Lindsay Salazar is President of Greeley Broadcasting Corporation, better known as Tigre Radio. The company was created by her father in 1997 and she had the opportunity to work beside and be trained by him. Greeley Broadcasting has five radio stations. KGRE AM and KGRE FM in northern Colorado and KFCS AM and K268DV FM in Colorado Springs and KRYE FM in Pueblo. In the five years since she has been President she has launched the Spanish radio stations in Colorado Springs, finalized the purchase of two stations and implemented new marketing campaigns that made the company more profitable even during the pandemic. As a small business owner, she wears many hats including; engineering, accounting, marketing and sales manager. She hopes to make Greeley Broadcasting a major player among the radio industry giants. She holds a black belt in Kuk Sool Won and enjoys the outdoors.

Reason for Running
Local broadcasters are underserved within the radio industry. Many large advertisers choose to advertise with the major broadcasting companies and smaller broadcasters are over looked or not even considered. Unfortunately, this leads to money lost for both advertisers and broadcasters. Many people prefer to listen to their local stations for entertainment as well as information. I would like to educate our local, state and federal governments on considering the impact of local broadcasters on our communities and how important it is to use this information when making legislative decisions.
