Danny Highsmith on Coach Mike Krzyzewski and George G. Beasley. (Encore)

One day a year ago this week, Wednesday, June 2, 2021 was a watershed day in North Carolina AND at Beasley Media Group headquarters in Fayetteville.

There was one person, a near fifty year employee of Beasley Media Group who was also the creator of the original DAILY “Talkback” program in the 1970’s, J. Daniel Highsmith (DANNY) , who saw up-close the leadership styles, acumen, and relentless pursuit of excellence and detail of BOTH MEN:
Coach “K” – Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski – the winningest coach in College Basketball – announced this would be his last season as head coach at Duke. On the eve of his retirement weekend, Coach K had more wins and more NCAA tournament appearances and wins than any College basketball coach in history!
The Founder of Beasley Media Group, George Garland Beasley, passed away at the age of 85! A former high school principal who bought his first radio station in Benson, NC in 1961 and remained connected to the company as Chairman to the day of his passing, George Beasley saw the ascension of his company from one station to one of the 5 or 6 largest in the U.S.A.  Along the way, he – along with his loving wife, Ann – raised children who run the company day-to-day today – plus a doctor, Bob, to who he was incredibly proud!
