Good Karma Broadcasting (GKB) was founded by Craig Karmazin in 1997 with the purchase of three radio stations in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, a place shaped by strong customer relationships and a quintessential Midwest work ethic.
Since its inception, GKB has added eight more stations, mostly ESPN affiliates to its roster, including nine stations in the Top 100 markets. What began as a broadcasting and radio group has now turned into a sports marketing enterprise, fueled by the desire to “do things differently” and offer customized solutions for all of GKB’s marketing partnerships. GKB's customized solutions have ranged from athlete endorsements to private events throughout the country, and GKB prides itself on its focus on long-lasting relationships with its partners.
The two newest ventures of GKB launched in 2012, and include GKB Events and GKB Wireless. GKB Events offers customized entertainment and event marketing opportunities, whether on behalf of its partners throughout the country or through large-scale events like the Wisconsin Sports Awards.
GKB Events also manages a set of three houses called The Tundra Trio, located adjacent to Lambeau Field in Green Bay. The Tundra Trio houses are available for private event rentals year round, and feature an attention to detail and customization level that truly elevates them to luxury entertainment status.
GKB Wireless is the company’s first retail business, a Verizon Wireless franchise with roots, like GKB’s, in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. GKB Wireless was designed to reinvent the relationship customers have with their wireless store and provider by turning the average customer into a dedicated fan and staying true to the mission of providing customized solutions to all of our fans and partners.
