Chris Kulick Begins New Endeavor at Main Street Media
Experienced radio and marketing professional, Chris Kulick, is making the move to Main Street Media, where he will serve as the New Business Development Sales Manager.
“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 that great company all the best,” Kulick says. “I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with the owner of Main Street Media, 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.”
Formerly with Ryman Hospitality Properties, Kulick resigned his position as WSM General Manager for this new venture. “We are very excited that Chris is joining the Main Street team. With his vast experience, he is going to be a tremendous help as we work on new ways to share information with our readers and bring more value to local advertisers,” Dave Gould, co-owner of Main Street Media, says.
Kulick, who was voted one of Radio Ink's 2018 Best Managers, has built an impressive reputation in radio and marking, including working with 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, respectively, 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, Kulick independently co-created Music City Sports Festival and the Peachtree Sports Festival (Atlanta, GA), which are both focused on youth sports clinics.
In addition to his career move, Kulick plans to continue to develop his songwriting career. He has released three albums to date – Old Time Night, Red Radio, and Songs From the Soul. Old Time Night won a San Francisco Bay Area Music Award (The BAMMIES), while Red Radio was nominated for one. Kulick has also performed at the historic Ryman Auditorium twice with Marty Stuart’s Late Night Jam. In his free time, he offers guitar lessons for beginners.
