Gabriel Media Celebrating our 20th year in Business.

Gabriel Media is the media industry leader in generating revenue and training your sales team. For almost 20 years, Gabriel Media has partnered with Radio & TV stations, to deliver over $300 million in local direct dollars.

A wonderful client testimonial:

“We have had a partnership with Gabriel Media for 15 years.  From the Great Recession to Covid, Gabriel Media’s Open House events have put millions of dollars in new business on our books. Their presentations are the most updated stories in our industry and it speaks to local business owners in a way that encourages them to buy advertising and digital! Plus, the sales training puts them over the top for my team!  I strongly encourage ANY media group to partner with them.”

Tim Huelsing, VP/Marketing Manager, Midwest Advertising, Evansville/Terre Haute, Indiana

Doesn’t it Make Sense That:

• Once a year you sweep the market and talk to as many businesses as possible in a no pressure Open House style environment?
• Once a year you conduct a professional sales event that even your sales staff can’t deny works?
• Once a year you have broadcast professionals come in and work with your staff to teaching them better selling skills?

We’ve now been in all 50 states!


These markets have benefitted from the Open House programs we have conducted:  Over $1 million sold in Augusta, GA; Lubbock, TX; Shreveport, LA; Fayetteville, NC; Wilkes-Barre, PA; and Joplin, MO.  Over $700k in Evansville, IN; Terre Haute, IN; Duluth, MN; Peoria, IL; Corpus Christi, TX.  And smaller markets that have done $500k or 20% of their entire stations billings like:  Hiawatha, KS; Huntington, WV; Wilmington, NC; Biloxi, MS; Chattanooga, TN; Fargo, ND; and 40 more markets!
