Bob Baldwin - CEO/Founder
Bob started his first job at the age of 15 to help take care of his family after his father fell ill. He later attended Geneva College in Beaver Falls, Pa., and acquired his degree in Business Administration with a Communication Minor it was there where he fell in love with Accounting and Radio.
Prior to graduating, he interned under Pat Prescott (WLIB) and Frankie Crocker (WBLS) in NY, which launched his Broadcasting career part-time, in between developing his solo recording career at Atlantic Jazz under Sylvia Rhone. In between recording his first 6 CD's (through 2008), he spent 3 years with MCI Sales and 14 years with Sprint's Accounts Receivable Department.
In 1997, he launched City Sketches, Inc. and began working on 6 more discs. The company was birthed initially to do Music Production, but has recently focused on Radio Programming, which included WJSJ/Jacksonville, KJAZ/Bermuda and WCLK/Atlanta. In October, 2008, he launched the New UrbanJazz Lounge, which began one hour at WJZZ (Radio-One) in Atlanta. The program currently has stations in the South and Northeast. As he weaves in and out of radio, he will be released a retrospective disc reflecting on his first 20 years in the business as an artist, appropriately titled, "The First 20".
