Our Team

I began my career in radio and journalism at the age of 15 in my hometown. I was fortunate to have garnered broad experience in media over my career, with an eye toward LGBTQ media. When I founded GayDesertGuide, I hoped to add radio and podcasting to the media mix. This integrated media approach is what I spent the last 20 years of my career on

Pitch

As originally concepted by Brad Fuhr, KGAY 106.5 Palm Springs radio and GayDesertGuide.LGBT together create a media company that will be unique to the marketplace, fill a need for the community and provide advertisers with a way to reach LGBTQ+ consumers.

KGAY and GayDesertGuide began together three years ago. When first launched, Brad Fuhr created an integrated sales program between radio and digital. The initial success of that strategy will be brought back to take a greater share of revenue from the market.

KGAY PSP, a California benefit corp, seeks $250,000 in investments to purchase the station and fund its operation through the next two years, where the stations is conservatively forecast to break even. (Forward-looking projections can't be guaranteed).

The initial round of $125,000 will finance expanded operations to bring the station back to its recent headcount with sales, marketing and programming as well as the $40,000 deposit on the radio stations and $15,000 to purchase receivables.

The second round of $125,000 will help complete the sale at the agreed upon price. The stations will be operated under an LMA (Local Marketing Agreement) with Sunnylands Broadcasting being paid $1,000 per month as an LMA fee in year one and $2,000 per month in year two.

Please read the entirety of our business plan below.

NOTE: All forward-looking projections in the business plan can't be guaranteed.
