William J. (Joe) Stack has been involved with electronics since 1972 and began working in radio broadcasting in 1984 at WOUB, Athens, Ohio while obtaining a BSEE from Ohio University. In 1988 he accepted the position of Radio Engineering Supervisor at the Telecommunications Center at Ohio University where he was in charge of equipment purchasing and maintenance of 8 radio studios. The Telecommunications Center eventually grew to include 3 FM sites, an AM site and 2 UHF TV transmitters placed in strategic locations throughout Southeast Ohio. Three local radio stations simultaneously employed him as a contract engineer and chief operator, maintainingÊ Harris SX series and Nautel Ampfet series AM transmitters and Harris, CCA and Energy-Onix FM equipment. During his contract engineer years, he began designing and building specialized devices to help solve problems in the studio and at the transmitter site and prepared the FCC applications and engineering exhibits for the Class A FM 6 KW power increase. In 1994 Mr. Stack took the position of Assistant Director of Engineering for Capital Cities / ABC Radio Division in New York.
