GatesAir Celebrates 100 Years of Service


In 1922, a 15-year-old boy began selling crystal radios in his hometown of Quincy, Ill., after his parents decided to start a business from their apartment’s kitchen. A century later, radio and television stations around the globe can thank Henry and Cora Gates for giving their son his first job — one that would result in the creation of what is today known as GatesAir.

The RBR+TVBR Spring 2022 Special Report — now available to RBR+TVBR Premium Members — offers a detailed report highlighting the company’s centennial observance, with CEO Bruce Swail offering comments alongside the Chief Revenue Officer at GatesAir, Joe Mack; and former GatesAir (and Harris Corporation-era) executives Jay Adrick and Geoff Mendenhall.
