Broadcasters Foundation of America joins the broadcasting industry as we mourn the passing of George G. Beasley, Founder and Executive Chairman of Beasley Media Group.
George was a radio industry innovator, advocate, mentor and pioneer. He led his company for 60 years, inspired by a commitment to provide a voice for the voiceless in his local community. His trailblazing achievements and generous philanthropy have been recognized across the industry. He was inducted into the NCAB’s Hall of Fame in 1998, the Nevada Broadcasters Association in 2008, and the Pennsylvania Broadcasters Hall of Fame in 2019. In 2020, he was inducted into the Country Radio Broadcasters Hall of Fame and received the Broadcasters Foundation of America Lifetime Achievement Award.
“George’s unconditional love for our mother, Ann and our family, along with his passion for the radio industry, helped to guide him throughout his lifetime,” said Beasley Media Group Chief Executive Officer Caroline Beasley. “A loving father, mentor, and friend, I will especially miss his incredible wisdom, keen insight and gentle smile.”
In lieu of flowers, the Beasley family requests donations be made in his name to Broadcasters Foundation of America, 125 West 55th Street, 4th Floor New York, New York 10019. Online donations may also be made by clicking below or visiting www.broadcastersfoundation.org/donate.
