An interview about last year’s SteelDay led a Kansas radio station to create a new weekly show hosted by Mark Hamade, chief operating officer of PKM Steel Service, Inc., an AISC Member/AISC Certified Fabricator in Salina, Kan.
Called “On the Mark with Mark Hamade,” (click on the image to enlarge the logo) the show will air at 5:30 p.m. (CST) on Wednesdays beginning February 6 on 95.5 FM The Rock, according to an article published in the Salina Journal.
According to the article, the show will include business segments with local and regional professionals and address topics in management and leadership. In addition, the program will provide opportunities for listeners to use online social media to send in questions, as well as time for Hamade to discuss his own approaches to business and life.
“Whether you’re the CEO of a major organization, a small business owner, a foreman on a job site or a third-shift lineman, this program will speak to you and help move you closer to both your personal and professional goals,” said Morgan Lillich, lead business development executive for 95.5 FM.
Added Hamade, “This can help just about anybody. The show is about business, but what makes you successful in business can also make you successful in life.”
In addition to broadcasting the show, the radio station will stream the program online through its website, www.salina-radio.com, and offer previous shows online as podcasts.
Last year’s SteelDay event at PKM Steel drew in about 2,500 people and included tours of PKM’s facilities and more than 100 vendor booths on site. In addition, it featured several entrepreneurial speakers including Nolan Bushnell, founder of the Atari Corporation. You can find AISC’s interview with Bushnell in our previous news post, here. And mark your calendars! This year’s national SteelDay is scheduled for October 4, 2013.
