John Devecka Leaves LPB for New Station

LPB Communications sales executive John Devecka will leave the supply company once owned by his father, to become operations manager for WLOY at Loyola College in Baltimore. The online and low-power AM station goes on the air in October.
"After 12 years of designing and building the stations, someone is going to make me run one," he said.
His replacement at LPB is Enrique Lanz, former director of Latin American sales.
Devecka's father bought LPB from founder Dick Crompton in 1987. The younger Devecka took a sales job there in 1990. His father sold the company in 1998 but his son stayed for four more years.
Devecka said he will assist in the transition necessitated by his departure. Among projects on which he worked at LPB were language translation systems for the 1996 Olympics and for a Billy Graham appearance in Amsterdam in 2000; digital automation for Royal Carribean International; information radio systems for Disney, AOL and Six Flags; and "a zillion" startup student radio programs.
