Dallas, Texas (August 19, 2014)…
Yesterday our organization, Service Broadcasting, the Dallas-Ft. Worth and Bay Area communities, and the radio world at-large lost one of our elite leaders, Michael Erickson.
Michael was a proven winner whose passion for developing people and ideas was simply unmatched. Over the years, Michael transformed our business and made all of our team better broadcasters and better human beings, as he did with everyone he touched throughout his career. We will miss his boundless energy, laughter in the hallways and his endless insights about radio and life.
As we endeavor to go forward, we are all so grateful for the moments we shared with Michael. He always gave freely of his time and knowledge to anyone ready to be enlightened, from interns to CEOs. To his credit, he was one of the best communicators and collaborators one could ever hope to work for and with. He was elegant at the art of execution and remained focused, engaged, and committed to every goal he set for himself until his last breath.
Our hearts go out to the loved ones he has left behind, especially his dedicated wife Patti, daughter Katie and the entire Erickson family.
Geo Cook quotes:
“Michael was a great mentor, fierce competitor and compassionate friend. He made an impact on me personally and professionally that I cannot totally express in words. I will miss him and his presence dearly.”
