Kyle Awerkamp


General Sales Manager

“As a provider of media solutions, coach, and mentor at heart, I like getting results. I focus on providing media sellers with the knowledge and the tools they need to develop client-focused solutions that work. I have been in the media business for 16 years, spending 9 of the years in national broadcast spot sales at Katz Media in both Chicago and Detroit.  Then at Quincy Media in 2013 as Regional Digital Sales Manager, Manager of Digital Sales for QMI, and recently as General Sales Manager at WSIL-TV (ABC) in Carterville, Illinois.

For me, there’s nothing better than working with media sellers and clients showing that a campaign we designed and executed is bringing customers through the door. The change that comes with working in the media business as a part of WGEM–TV is the most exciting part of what I do. I am always working to inform and empower media sellers and our advertisers the value of what media can do for them.

I was born and raised in Quincy, Ililnois, attended Eastern Illinois University as a scholarship athlete. I am married to my wife Kelly and have three children.  I am a self-proclaimed golf junkie, love coffee and chocolate, and I have met Bill Clinton. Twice.”
