FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 


TEXAS ASSOCIATION OF BROADCASTERS ANNOUNCES COREENA HAZELETT, AS RADIO BROADCASTER OF THE YEAR!


The Ranch Radio Marketing group is proud to announce our very own Coreena Hazelett has been named the Texas Association of Broadcasters 2024 Radio Broadcaster of the year!


Coreena began her career in radio in 1993 with the iconic John Barger at KRIO/KONO San Antonio. As a single mother of 3 boys, Coreena was Office Manager and handled AR/AP. She quickly became John’s ‘go-to’ person. In 1998 She moved to Waterman Broadcasting’s KTSA/KTFM as Traffic Director. From there she made her leap into sales. Rex Tackett said she was, “determined to succeed. Coreena is a remarkable person, she absorbed RAB & all other sources of training. In 50 years, I’ve never seen anyone have greater success learning and starting from ‘zero’. She is “self-taught” more than anyone I’ve ever met.” Within the first year she was top biller. In five years, she was Sales Manager. During her tenure at KTSA/KTFM, she served on Dave Ramsey’s Affiliate Executive Council at Ramsey Solutions and was recognized with Dave Ramsey’s ‘Quest of the Blue Vase’ Award for classic values of honesty, determination, passion and responsibility.


Ranch Radio Marketing Group owner Mark Grubbs made multiple attempts to hire Coreena. In 2011 & 2015 his offers were met with a resounding, “No, thank you.” In 2018, Mark tried again to hire Coreena as Sales Manager and thankfully, on July 2, 2018 Coreena joined Ranch Radio Marketing Group.


During her time at Ranch Radio Marketing Group, Coreena’s EntreLeadership influence has inspired her team. She helps strengthen unity and commitment and has created a culture of success. In 2019 she was promoted to Vice President and General Manager. In 2021 she was promoted to President and Chief Operations Officer. With Coreena at the helm, Ranch Radio Marketing Group continues to grow. With initiatives such as launching a 5th radio station, Shop, Stay & Play, Hill Country Strong, expanding the brand to include digital marketing, The Hill District Grandstand Radiothon and more, Coreena has helped the Ranch Radio Marketing Group to truly thrive in the Texas Hill Country.


Coreena Hazelett, with over 32 years in broadcast radio is an exemplary role model of a successful radio broadcaster and we are so proud to have her be recognized as the Texas Association of Broadcasters 2024 Radio Broadcaster of the Year!
