Bonneville International Market Manager Carl Gardner Retiring

SAN FRANCISCO Bonneville International’s San Francisco Market Manager and Senior Vice President Carl Gardner has announced his retirement at the end of August.

“Carl has been a tremendous asset to Bonneville,” said Darrell Brown, president of Bonneville International. “We will miss his leadership, deep experience and friendship.”

Gardner began his 43-year media career in Seattle before following a career path to Denver, Portland, and Milwaukee.

Before joining Bonneville in 2008, Gardner served 17 years with Journal Communications. At Journal, he held broad and varied senior executive responsibility for the company’s radio and television operations, its digital media enterprises, and its technology group.  He returned to Seattle as Bonneville’s market manager in 2008, transferring to San Francisco when Bonneville re-entered that market in 2017.

Gardner is past chairman of the NAB Radio Board and a past member of the NAB Executive Committee. He has served the broadcasting industry in various capacities, including membership of the Radio Advertising Board of Directors, the Associated Press Advisory Board, and the Washington State Association of Broadcasters board of directors.

Bonneville International will announce Gardner’s successor later this month.
