Kathy Flerx is Sales Manager for WSIC. In addition to providing leadership for the sales team, Kathy enjoys meeting face-to-face with clients to help them customize advertising solutions that grow business. Starting her career as a part-time on-air personality at WXCF in Virginia, Kathy learned the business from the ground-up. She went on to work in numerous sales and management roles including her first appearance at WSIC between 1999 and 2006. “It was a lot of fun,” says Kathy of her first stint at WSIC and WFMX. “I’ve always loved radio. It’s a wonderful and rewarding thing to help a business grow and prosper. There’s no better way than radio to accomplish that!” Outside of work, Kathy enjoys experimenting in the kitchen, DIY projects around her house, and spending time with family.
