Brenda Alesii


“Creative, innovative and multifaceted in all realms of the media and marketing.”

About Brenda: “It’s fair to say the media is in my blood. My experience includes work as a journalist for newspapers and magazines, public relations and marketing, and several years as a television producer for the Empire Sports Network, which was broadcast nationwide. In addition, I was the only female host on Empire’s sister all-sports radio station. For the last 10 years, I’ve had the pleasure of working in the marketing and advertising department here at Entercom Buffalo, a radio group with seven stations that are as diverse as our listening audience. I’ve had the privilege of working with businesses of all sizes throughout Western New York. As theradio business has evolved, we now have even more tools—creative radio commercials, digital assets such as streaming radio, display ads, video pre-roll, texting—to help raise awareness and branding for our clients. When those tools are combined with iconic air personalities, we can build campaigns that are unrivaled in local marketing. When clients tell me about the success they’ve enjoyed as a direct result of what we created here at Entercom, the satisfaction level makes coming to work fun and worthwhile. In addition to my sales and marketing work, I host “Brenda’s Bites,” a weekly show focusing on the local restaurant scene, interviews with owners, chefs, festival organizers and area farmers. I invite you to join me at the table every Sunday from 10:30 – 11am on WWKB-AM ESPN 1520.

Brenda Alesii and her team at Entercom walked me through each step highlighting what would give me the best results and what we be the best investment. I never felt pressured or like I was dealing with an aggressive sales pitch. What I felt was an extension of my business and people who truly wanted to see Dispenza's Meat Market gain customers and increased business.  I have taken advantage of the many resources they have to offer and have continued to advertise with them as the results speak for themselves.
