Jarrett Joins Free Times as Ad Director

Free Times is pleased to announce the addition of Graham Jarrett to our staff as Advertising Director.

Graham has spent the last five years as Music Retail Marketing Director at Manifest Discs and Tapes, a locally owned music retail chain with locations in five markets in the Carolinas. He developed media strategies and managed placement of $2 million in media buys, developed promotions and strategies for labels to increase awareness, and solicited enough coop funds to increase advertising expenditures by 50 percent in his first year.

Prior to his music retail experience, Graham was an account executive at WAVF-FM in Charleston, S.C. and interned with CBS Radio in Washington, DC, and Newman, Saylor and Gregory agency in Columbia, S. C. A native of Kingstree, S. C., he received his Bachelor of Arts, Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of South Carolina.

“Graham is a dynamic, creative individual who will help Free Times continue our growth, meet competitive challenges and adapt to the changing marketplace,” says Publisher Amy Singmaster. “He will be an asset to the alternative newspaper industry and we are thrilled to have snagged him.”
