Sturges Dorrance

My wife, Pam, and I have been associated with the Long Beach Peninsula for nearly 50 years, Sadly, Pam died in June of this year. We built our house here 26 years ago and moved permanently from Seattle six years ago.

I have been a listener and sustaining supporter of KMUN since we moved here. I admire greatly how much you do for this community – with limited resources. You are a model of what a community radio station should be, an accomplishment of which you should all be very proud.

I spent my entire professional life in broadcasting starting in college radio and ending as General Manager of KING5 Television, Seattle, where I served nearly a decade in the 1980’s

Along the way I was producer, a writer and reporter both off and on air. My ascent at King Broadcasting was on the business side in radio and television sales and sales management.

After leaving King Broadcasting just prior to the sale of the company in 1990 I was fortunate enough to be able to retire. In Seattle I served on a number of non-profit boards including KUOW Radio and KCTS Television. I was also involved with organizations in academics and the arts.

Away from the Northwest I had many consulting assignments for USIA and USAID in Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union and the Middle East. I taught seminars and consulted with independent television stations and networks.
