“Carey is an impressive talent and has a deep understanding of today's changing advertising, branding and marketing landscape. On-the-air, he is witty and sharp, making every segment entertaining and helping to build up those around him. Off-the-air, he's adept at cultivating talent and working with his colleagues in sales, PR and marketing to develop campaigns that are as memorable as they are effective. Carey is great at networking, building relationships with clients and delivering on every commitment he makes.” July 20, 2009

“Carey was an amazing person to work for. I was fortunate to work for him in two places. The good thing about Carey is he always took into account what others thought around him, and accepted input from colleagues which created a team environment. Although I was at the start of my career when first working for Carey, he still took into account my thoughts and ideas, and instituted things based on them as well. As X102 was a start up radio station, Carey hired me from the previous station we worked at which flipped format to the position here. It was a great start up as it was built from the ground up, and the experience I gained working for Carey is something that I carry with me today, years later. He never came off as someone who was above the staff... he was always a part of the rest of the staff, which made for a pleasant working environment. Carey also was very creative, coming up with unique ways to promote our radio station and put it on the map. I would definitely recommend Carey for any programming duties or other radio related duties. He has the background of working with some of the greatest people in the industry over the years too, which makes him that much stronger.” July 12, 2009

“I’ve hired Carey on several occasions as a recruiter / lead provider for my clients, via live endorsement announcements on radio. Carey’s grasp of the creative tactics needed to provide quality lead production was stellar. I have another project pending in this arena and will put Carey’s skill-set to work again, since he provides an excellent ROI! I recommend Carey's work to you, he's a real professional. Feel free to contact me with any questions I may not have answered here.” June 16, 2009
