Dan Dripps – Account Coordinator

Hello,

I am the Account Coordinator working alongside John Griffin serving our clients who advertise on 93.5/1070 The Fan, 107..5 ESPN, Network Indiana, and 93.1 WIBC.

I was born a Hoosier in Kokomo, IN but grew up in the Buckeye state. I moved to Wapakoneta, OH in 1996 and spent most of my life in the small town of Wapakoneta, OH. I attended Wapakoneta High School where I graduated in 2009. While attending I played football, soccer, and ran track while also being a member of the National Honor Society, President of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and Vice-President of my class.

Upon graduation I attended Mount Saint Joseph University in Cincinnati, OH to obtain my Bachelors for Sport Management and a Minor in Business Administration. I was also a four year NCAA collegiate athlete spending four years as the Kicker for the football team and one year running track. I also helped start the Sport Management Association, the first student organization for Sport Management majors on campus, where I spent one year as the President. After graduating in 2013, I went on to receive my Masters in Sport Management from The Ohio State University. During my time at OSU, I worked as a Graduate Administrative Associate in the Recreation Department helping to run the Intramural and Club Sports programs.

The education and experiences I received during my collegiate years led to me moving to Indianapolis in 2015 for an opportunity to intern with the Colts in the Sponsorship department, where I started to grow my desire to work in sales. Since then, I have spent my time building on my skills and experience in the Sponsorship industry through positions in and out of sports. Those opportunities have lead me to my current position with Emmis, where I look to grow substantially and build a career within the organization.

With this new role I am aware that there is a lot expected of me. I am fortunate to have a chance to work for one of the most respected sales people that this company has ever seen. It is important for me to continue learning each and every day. This is a great moment for me to continue to grow my sales experience while also learning about the exciting and competitive radio industry.
