Jim Barcus Retires
Jim Barcus is
retiring as head of automation manufacturer Digital Jukebox.
In a letter this
week he tells clients, “I always considered each of my software users as a
friend. You made the Digital Jukebox the success it is today.”
He developed his
product in 1995 as a cost-effective option “to help broadcaster that didn’t
have a spare $20k laying around to automate their stations yet get a very
feature filled automation system.”
As Radio World has reported, Barcus recently announced a new sales and support arrangement.
after six months of having the new team in place, I announce my retirement from
the company. … I am turning the company over to the Paley family, Carol, Ted
and Ron. Support will be handled by Robert Parsons, who himself has many years
in the radio automation industry as a support technician.”
Barcus added that he
plans to be on the NAB Show floor Monday to meet with clients.
