Member Profile - Lou McNamara
This week - let's meet Rotary Member, Lou McNamara!
Also, if you read until the end of the bio, let's see if you can guess which one of the three facts Lou stated is a lie!
"My name is Lou McNamara, and I have been a member of the Rotary Club of Sussex for just about 17 years. My background is Radio Broadcasting and have been in radio media for just over 40 years, beginning with training in Toronto, Halifax, and then finally starting my actual on-air career with Humber Valley Broadcasting in Port Aux Basques NF, where I met my incredible wife…who puts up with me to this very day. So far so good!
Presently I’m General Manager/Marketing for CJCW Radio in Sussex, joining Maritime Broadcasting Systems in 1986. In my role with CJCW Radio I have certified myself in Radio Marketing, helping local businesses grow their sales and marketing base. Assisting businesses, in whatever way I can, to increase their bottom line and contributing to their success has been the most satisfying part of my job. I’ve always said that Sussex and area is blessed to have its very own Radio Station.
For those who own a business, or manage a business, I would strongly suggest joining the Rotary Club of Sussex. Since joining Sussex Rotary, and as a past President, I’ve got to know so many wonderful and kind business people with one common goal- to help our local Sussex and area, while at the same time developing their own leadership skills. With weekly lunchtime meetings I’ve found it so easy and convenient to attend. If you’re in business and would be interested in tangibly giving back to this area, I would highly recommend the Rotary Club of Sussex, where you can network with other business people, while at the same time giving back to this area."
Which one is true?
  • I once worked for CHSJ Radio in Saint John

  • I also received the “Silver Sow Award” for the morning CJCW Agricultural Report
