Former R&R Exec Running For Office


Barry O’Brien tells Radio Ink he has filed a notice of his intention to run for the office of West Palm Beach City Commissioner. Commissioner Paula Ryan currently represents District 3 — which O’Brien will contest — and has announced her intention to run for Mayor of West Palm Beach. This is O’Brien’s first campaign as a candidate.

O’Brien began his career in the radio industry at WVBF Radio in Boston. In 1979, he moved to Washington, DC, to work in sales at Q-107 Radio. From 1981, and for the next 20 years, O’Brien was the Vice President of Sales for Radio & Records (R&R). He was based in Washington, DC, with offices in New York and Los Angeles, and worked with some of the largest radio companies and vendors around the country.
