John Rode

   John worked mid-days at WALT and was its program director in 1966. Before moving to Florida, the Wisconsin native did overnights at WKLO and worked at WINN, both in Louisville. Following the brief Tampa gig, he moved to WSAI Cincinnati, WRKO Boston, WIBG Philadelphia, and WDRC Hartford. Around 1970, he crossed the border into Canada to work for Toronto’s CKFH, CHUM and CKEY, and Vancouver’s CKVN/CFUN.

With his prior experience in the radio industry as a broadcast engineer, radio personality, radio station manager, computer programmer, and system and software designer, John founded John Rode Data Systems in 1984 to create computer systems specifically for the broadcast industry. In 1993 the company was renamed MediaLAB and taken over by Mediastats, Inc., a telecommunication information research firm near Toronto.

Today (2007), John is senior vice-president and chief information officer of both companies and, as the head of technology, designs and supervises the creation of all in-house computer and communication systems. He is also the chief designer of the MediaLAB administration software product line.
