  • Joe Cortese ’81 Takes Communication Students Inside Radio & TV Industry


    As the semester winds down for communication students here at Dean College, they were fortunate to be joined by a successful 1981 alumnus of Dean College, Mr. Joe Cortese.

    joe corteseMr. Cortese has spent the last three decades making a name for himself in the radio industry, most recently as a Production Director at CBS Radio Boston, the company which runs stations such as AMP 103.3, MIX 104.1, and 98.5 The Spots Hub, among others.

    Communications students in the School of the Arts at Dean College were treated to an informative lecture from Mr. Cortese filled with inside information on how to “make it” in the business of radio and TV. Following the lecture, students networked with Mr. Cortese during a dinner and group discussion.

    Mr. Cortese is the host of the world-wide syndicated “Back to the 80s Friday Night with Joe Cortese.” His wife, Mary, also graduated from Dean College and they remain an active part of the Dean College community.
