Al McGowan Named CEO of TrafficCast

February 3, 2011 TrafficCast, a company that provides digital traffic data and technology, announced the appointment of Al McGowan as Chief Executive Officer.  

McGowan has 20 years of media experience, including roles in traffic and travel information content.  In the 1990s, Al was President of Shadow Traffic, a company that playes a role in nationalizing the syndication of traffic reports heard on the radio.  The company was purchased by national radio network Westwood One, where he became Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Traffic Services.  In 1999, Al was one of the founders of, corporately known as Mobility Technologies.

I like this industry, and I like the foundation we have at TrafficCast, McGowan continued.  I am enthusiastic about this industry because of the dynamic nature of traffic content and the emerging distribution channels that can finally deliver on the promise of real time, actionable information. I believe TrafficCast is uniquely positioned to take advantage of the incredible potential in this market.
