When Vern brought me back to Virginia Beach, I noticed he knew what he was doing. He knows what works and what doesn’t. Vern will teach you how to do more than just read liners and the weather. If you’re willing to accept direction and put that work in, Vern can show you how to take the next step as a personality and let the real you shine.

“When I initially came on board to the ABC Radio Radio Networks, the programming and syndication team led by Director of Operations, Vern Catron were an integral part in working with me in spearheading the launch of my first nationally syndicated, ‘Secret Garden Radio’, which conceptually derived from my #1 hit with my mentor Quincy Jones.
It was truly a blessing to work with such a talented professional like Vern and the ABC Radio Network team”

“When I first started working with Vern I had pretty much given up hope with radio. Not only did Vern restore my hope, he pushed me to my full potential. His knowledge of radio, strong leadership skills, and stern but loving coaching lead me to Number #1. I owe my longevity, knowledge and skills in this business to the ultimate professional, Vern Catron”.

I have worked with Vern Catron on two occasions. As a Manager he was more of “coach” even then as he guided me and helped me grow. He brought out the best in me as a broadcaster.
Vern knows what audiences respond to.
I am forever in his debt for his wisdom.

I would have to start by using a line or two from Gil Scott Heron “I did not become someone different that I did not want to be, but I’m new here. Will you show me around?” and Vern Catron with his patience, understanding and radio knowledge showed me around, walked me, and helped me to understand and get the whole picture of radio at WIGO and anywhere else after that. I was young and wanting to become someone different and this man’s leadership and experience taught me and gave me the tools to do that.

Mr. Vernon Catron is the media heavyweight everyone needs in their corner.
He is a true professional, with solid contacts and an even more solid, highly revered reputation in the industry.
No matter the task put before him, Mr. Catron executes strategically, often giving best practices suggestions.
Working with him, I not only got what I needed, but I learned more than a few things that will assist with future projects – each of which- I plan to seek Mr. Catron’s expertise.
