Greater Media, founded in 1956 by two Yale classmates, is a privately owned company with corporate headquarters in Braintree, Massachusetts. From the ownership of a single radio station in Southbridge, Massachusetts, Greater Media steadily and quietly built a broad-based combination of successful communications companies, spanning America from coast to coast. By the 1980’s, Greater Media’s business included radio, cable television, printing, publishing, and telecommunications operations. In 1999, the company sold its cable business in order to focus more exclusively on its radio and newspaper operations.
Today, Greater Media is the parent company of 23 AM and FM radio stations in Boston, Charlotte, Detroit, Philadelphia and New Jersey; and a group of weekly newspapers in central New Jersey; and several telecommunications towers throughout the United States.
From the beginning, Greater Media and its operating companies have stressed the autonomy of local management, dedication to local community service, and leadership in developing and adapting new technology and services to improve media communications.
Over the years, our employees have provided the skills and talent necessary to ensure our continuing growth and success. We are proud of this heritage. We know this is where our future lies.
