Pick a job in a television newsroom; Marv Rockford has done it. Marv is now taking his experience as a news and broadcast executive and putting it to good use in advising Rockford Gray’s clients.
Marv’s broadcast career started in Tucson where he worked as a reporter before wisely moving in to news management. In 1981, he joined KCNC-TV in Denver, holding various management positions in the news department, including more than a decade as news director. In 1995, he became General Manager.
Under Marv’s leadership, KCNC was awarded the highest American broadcast journalism honors including the DuPont, the Peabody, the Iris, the National Headliner Award and was an unprecedented three-time winner of the national Edward R. Murrow Award for Overall Excellence.
Marv has spent a lot of time on both sides of the glass wall that separates news from business. He’s directed news coverage and he’s fended off news coverage. He’s skewered and he’s been skewered. Clients of Rockford Gray value both experiences. The advice and coaching they get isn’t based on theory or observation, it’s based on Marv’s real life experience.
Marv holds Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Journalism from Northwestern University.
