“Just want to take a minute and say thank you Jim for maybe one of the best interviews we have ever done. You actually took the time to look into who we are and what we are all about and we had a great time.. Thank You!”

Pat Dawsey – Program Director Z-rock

To Whom It May Concern,

When working for ABC Radio Networks, Z-Rock, Jim demonstrated great agility and natural talent on air. Always with “gas in the tank and new oil in the engine”, my idea guy! In other words, Jim showed himself to be very energetic, positive, always ready to take on new responsibilities and prepared to offer ideas and insights on a frequent basis.

Jim demonstrated a very savvy, no-nonsense understanding of the business and added a truly professional perspective to our staff.

Sincerely,

Pat Dawsey
Z-rock Program Director

It’s horrible news to hear that one of the most talented, detail-oriented ATs we have on our stations is about to leave our air.  I truly wish you the very best, Jim, and it’s been great having you on WBIK.  If you find yourself in a position where positive comments from me can help make a difference, I’d be honored to put in my two-cents worth!

In the meantime, God bless you in a big way and I wish you nothing but a gratifying and tremendous success!

Sincerely,

David L. Wilson

“.. Who’d of thunk it?! A guy who comes right out of a high-profile Rock situation could make himself fit in and find a home so well in Talk Radio and A/C?! I’m convinced (Jim) could do anything in this business that he puts his mind to.”

Jim Coda worked with us in the ABC Radio Networks Z-Rock format , which I consulted for several years, and I found his work to be excellent in all respects. Beyond solid and creative air work, he was an active contributor of ideas and the entire Network.

Prior to Z-rock, I also worked with Jim at my client station WLAV in Grand Rapids, where his work was equally strong!

If you have any questions, please contact me.

I worked directly and indirectly with Jim Coda at Dial Global radio networks. Jim’s primary duty was to entertain via a nightly radio show on our Classic Rock channel. Jim’s efforts were always top-notch and full of passion for winning.

He was also required to learn a new technical approach to performing. He mastered that with ease and was helpful as a coaching team member to others. Jim demonstrated excellent knowledge of the format and was consistantly willing to bring forward any perceived opportunity. Finally, Jim was a good, solid employee. He was always on time (early) and always ready to go to work.

I am happy to answer any questions about Jim’s work at Dial Global.

In the short time I’ve known Jim, he’s impressed me with not only his on air talents, but his programming knowledge. Jim understands today’s radio listener.  He’s a natural communicator.  He’s passionate and has a desire to win.

Even though Jim has years of experience both at the local and network radio level, he’s always looking for ways to improve, learn and grow.

Jim would be an asset in any position

Respectfully,

June 18th, 2012 To Whom It May Concern: I have had the incredible fortune to work with Jim Coda during his time at Dial Global Radio Networks, since 2010. Although our time was limited, his enthusiasm, professionalism and approach to his on-air and production roles were unparalleled. In the past 17 years with the Network, I’ve worked with many on-air talents, although, Jim’s professionalism, skills, creativity and willingness to take on additional tasks was always second to none. Even in the ever changing industry, Jim would adapt to the situation and would always handle things with tact and grace. Jim is not only a team-player, he would make a great asset to any organization. Kindest Regards,   Chris Reeves Vice President Operations Global Radio Networks creeves@dialglobal.com
