...and dozens of other businesses throughout Northeast Ohio.

On the advertising sales side:
Mr. Dardis had the luxury of working for Metro Traffic Control - known today as Metro Networks,
a WestWood One company.
This time (starting in 1984) is considered a "luxury" because as General Manager of Metro's
Cleveland office he was able to work directly with Metro Networks founder David Saperstein,
taking an active part in helping build Metro from 10 markets to a 32 city network.
Ken accompanied Mr. Saperstein to dozens of meetings, learning the art of building a successful
company. Most importantly he was able to witness the resistance given to a new idea, and
the technique used by Mr. Saperstein to overcome a radio industry's doubt about traffic reports
in its programming. (This same resistance is shown the Internet by the advertising community.)

Having produced the Cleveland Indians
and Cleveland Browns radio networks for
multiple years
- and acting as official "voice"
for both teams - Mr. Dardis' is recognized as
an experience long-form program specialist.
Credits include writing and producing pre
and post season specials for the Indians,
many during their three years as divisional
champions and two years in the World Series.

"Thank you for doing such a terrific job with the post-season
highlight package. I recently had the opportunity to listen to it,
and it gave me goose bumps!"
Dennis Lehman
Executive Vice President,
Business Operations
Cleveland Indians

Working directly with the mayor of Cleveland,
Ken created the promotional campaign to
unite fans upon the 1995 announcement the
Cleveland Browns were moving to Baltimore.
