Our Story

IT ALL STARTED WITH A DREAM TO OWN A SPORTS TALK STATION…

Good Karma Broadcasting (GKB) was founded by Craig Karmazin in 1997 with the purchase of three radio stations in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. Beaver Dam is a place shaped by its strong community relationships and Midwest work ethic, which helped form the core values of the company and its business philosophy in our subsequent markets.

 

Over the years, GKB acquired new ESPN affiliated broadcast and digital assets in Milwaukee, Madison, Cleveland and West Palm Beach, becoming a Best Practices leader within ESPN Audio.

 

GKB has since expanded into new industries, including wireless, events and home solutions, and is always fueled by the desire to do things differently and offer customized solutions for fans, partners and consumers. The expansion into a wide variety of customized solutions led GKB to form Good Karma Brands in early 2014.

 

Good Karma Brands boasts many different assets – but they are all operated with the same principles learned in Beaver Dam over 15 years ago.
