Local Sales Manager
Ask Kerri Glensky about her passions in life, and after family and friends comes marketing. “I live and breathe marketing,” she smiles.
Kerri brings more experience than she cares to admit to the table. After graduating from the University of Central Missouri with a communications degree (broadcasting emphasis), she moved into a twenty-year marketing and public relations career for not-for-profits such as the Missouri Chamber of Commerce, Missouri Farm Bureau and the second largest electric cooperative in the state. “I bought tons of advertising; but given my current base of knowledge, I’d do it differently,” she says.
Shortly after the birth of her youngest child, she made a mid-life career switch to advertising sales. Following a short stint in print, she moved to radio and eventually TV advertising sales primarily in the Branson/Springfield market. She worked for KTTS-FM, a heritage 100,000-watt radio station that, to this day, garners top ratings in most demographics. Then she moved to TV advertising, selling both FOX and CBS affiliates.
Prior to joining KOAM/FOX14, she spent three years in Rolla, Missouri, as General Manager for two FM radio stations. “I had the unparalleled experience of launching an ESPN radio affiliate. Not bad for the world’s worst sports fan,” she quips. Kerri’s now adding digital sales to her marketing arsenal, meaning she can offer a veritable smorgasbord of marketing solutions to area businesses.
Kerri and her husband, Steven, still have house and seven acres in rural southwest Missouri where they spend most weekends. They also maintain a home in Joplin. The ultimate family planners, their children range from 42 to 20. Their oldest son, Brian, and his family reside in San Diego, California. Three of their children live in Joplin. Their daughter, Kate, is a school teacher. Son James is in beverage sales; and youngest son Nathan is a sophomore in college.
In her spare time, Kerri reads (presidential biographies are a favorite) and pursues her most recent hobby of spinning yarn and weaving.
