Meet the Media Services Group partners: Bill Whitley


From the "Palace in Dallas" comes the one and only Bill Whitley.


When Bill isn't tending cattle at the ranch just outside scenic Seymour, TX, he runs our Dallas MSG office. We worked together back in the Chapman Associates days. When Media Services Group launched twenty years ago, Bill went "independent" for a few years; but he eventually saw the err of his ways and signed on with us eleven years ago.

Bill has been in the broadcast brokerage field for over thirty years. From his Dallas base, he has been active nationally with an emphasis on media properties in the southwest. (None of the rest of us dare do any business in Texas or adjoining states without asking Bill's permission to enter first). Bill has completed over $300,000,000 in broadcasting transactions and personally handled an estimated three hundred and fifty appraisal assignments.

Prior to his brokerage career, Bill worked in television production in Dallas-Fort Worth. In radio, he held sales and management positions in Temple, Dallas, and Little Rock.

Bill has also served as a receiver for broadcast properties in Texas and Louisiana. He has worked with trustees, debtors, creditors and the courts in Chapter 11, Chapter 7, receiverships, and foreclosure proceedings in both a consultant and broker role. He has served as an expert witness in court proceedings relative to broadcast station values in Texas, New Mexico and Arkansas. He has served as a guest lecturer at several universities and has been a panelist on valuation seminars for state broadcast associations.
"Wild Bill" Whitley holds both Bachelor and Master’s Degrees in Radio-Television from his beloved Texas Christian University. "Go Horned Frogs!"
