Devon O’Day and Chris Kulick have joined Main Street Media, with O’Day joining the New Business Development Sales Division as New Media Host, and Kulick joining as New Business Development Sales Manager.
O’Day and Kulick will expand Main Street Media’s reach with a podcast network, social broadcasts, brand stories and partnership with Main Street Media’s current digital platforms.
O’Day exited Nashville Today on WSM in February before joining Main Street Media. She spent 18 years in radio work with Gerry House and the House Foundation, five years for WSM, and three with Mix 92.9. She is also an accomplished author for Thomas Nelson, Abingdon Press, and Guideposts. As a songwriter, O’Day’s songs have been recorded by Trace Adkins, Hank Williams, Jr., and Lee Ann Womack. Along with House, she penned a No. 1 song for George Strait, titled “The Big One.” She has also narrated more than 70 audiobooks for Audible, among other endeavors.
“Media must do more to keep engagement with an audience. We have to give them what they can’t get anywhere else,” O’Day said. “We need to work harder for our advertising clients caring that the message works. We need content that is unique and available visually and audibly in many formats. Main Street Media with Dave Gould and Chris Kulick is a place where vision is not only encouraged but applauded. I’m thrilled to join this incredible team to tell our hometown stories.”
Kulick, who was voted one of Radio Ink’s 2018 Best Managers, has built a reputation in radio and marketing while working in sales and promotions at 99.7 WTN, the Titans Radio Network, and 104.5 The Zone. Both 99.7 WTN and 104.5 The Zone became the number one billing stations in the market with Kulick’s influence. While at WSM, he created and monetized WSM Roadshow, Music City Mentors, Music for Kids, Route 650 Americana streaming station, and the Opry Radio streaming station. Additionally, he co-created Music City Sports Festival and the Peachtree Sports Festival in Atlanta, Georgia, both of which are focused on youth sports clinics.
“I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with Dave Gould. From the day I met Dave, I felt a special chemistry that I believe will allow us to continue to grow Main Street Media’s vision, while allowing me to bring my unique skill set to the daily operations,” Kulick said. “I am grateful for the 18 cumulative years I spent with Gaylord Entertainment, Ryman Hospitality, and WSM. I would like to thank the CEO, Colin Reed, and all of the great people I met for treating me so well throughout the years. I wish them all the best.”
