Brunt Exits Beasley For Jacobs Roles


Consulting and research firm Jacobs Media and leading mobile application development company jācapps is welcoming a Director of Digital and Revenue Generation.

At the same time, Seth Resler is exiting his role as a digital strategy consultant.

Coming January 2024: The RBR+TVBR Winter 2024 magazine, featuring a cover story with Fred and Paul Jacobs discussing their annual CES tour for radio broadcasters and why the Las Vegas mega-convention and expo is now a must-attend event for all Radio CEOs.

Joining Fred Jacobs and his brother, Paul, at the Detroit-area based operations they run is the former Digital Sales Manager for Beasley Media Group’s stations in the Motor City: Chris Brunt.

Brunt is a veteran of the radio stations, and remained with the group following their acquisition by Beasley from Greater Media in October 2016. He had been associated with the radio stations since January 2003, joining from Sv3 Media Group in Rochester, Mich., a web development company.

“Over the past forty years, we have constantly adjusted and upgraded our services to adapt to our clients’ needs,” Jacobs Media President Fred Jacobs said. “Today, the big need of our clients across both of our companies is digital revenue solutions. Chris is like the ‘Swiss Army Knife’ of digital – he’s a revenue generation expert, and he understands everything from programming to programmatic.”

Brunt will also be developing revenue opportunities for jācapps’ mobile apps clients. “Chris will be developing revenue strategies as well as opportunities for our mobile app clients to broaden their reach,” jācapps Chief Operating Officer Bob Kernen noted. “While jācapps clients love our versatile mobile platform, we are now going to take things up a notch and help them generate even more revenue.”

Commenting on the departure of Resler later this month. Jacobs Media Vice President/General Manager Paul Jacobs said, “Seth has developed interests he wants to pursue, and we support him in this endeavor. As opportunities arise, he may serve as a consultant to Jacobs Media in the future.”
