Gerberding Leaves Nassau

A familiar face on the broadcast management scene is moving on.
Joan Gerberding has resigned from Nassau Broadcasting Partners.
"I need to reassess where I am at this juncture of my career and my life, take some downtime to rest and recharge, then I want to consider some new challenges and tackle them," she stated. President/CEO Louis Mercatanti made the announcement.
Gerberding joined Nassau as sales development manager in 1980, and eventually helped the company expand from two stations with national advertising revenue of $2 million to more than 20 stations in New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania with national revenue of $10 million, the company said. In the fall of 2000 she was named president of offshoot company Nassau Media Partners.
Nassau Media Partners will continue under Daniel Henrickson, the company stated.
Gerberding is former president of American Women in Radio and Television and an active member of the group Most Influential Woman in Radio. She is a recipient of the RAB's Radio Wayne Award as Broadcaster of the Year.
She also worked in the late 1970s for WCOD in Hyannis, Mass.
