Jeannie was born and raised in Kansas City but has lived in several other cities on our fine planet, including Bonn, Germany. She graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in German Education. But, alas, she discovered that high school teaching was not what she wanted to do. She became fascinated with the media world and has spent the past thirty-six (36) years as an Account Executive for various radio and television stations including KCMO Radio, KCTV 5, KUDL/WHB radio, KSMO-TV and then ended her career with fourteen (14) great years at FOX4 WDAF-TV. Needing more flexibility in her life, she left FOX4 and joined her friend of many years, Thi Wynn, in her successful advertising agency, Time Wise, Inc. Jeannie is thrilled to be joining forces with her long-time friend and is very excited about this new chapter in her life.

Account Executive

There is an old saying that “when one door closes, another will open.” That certainly is true for Bob Zuroweste.

Bob has spent most of his career in Kansas City managing radio stations for Entercom, CBS Radio, and Shamrock Broadcasting. He also managed Shamrock Broadcasting properties in Denver, Colorado, and the Clear Channel Media Group in Dayton, Ohio. During his tenure managing radio groups, Bob developed a keen sense of helping both his stations and their client advertisers grow their revenue through the power of branding.

In 2010, Bob transitioned from radio management to Branding Specialist when he joined Cumulus Media Corporate. In this role, Bob presented his ”Branding Workshop” to over 20,000 businesses in 65 markets from New York City to Kokomo, Indiana. The workshop was designed to help local businesses understand the power of creating their brand and the steps to build a positive image for their company.

In April, 2015, Bob made the decision to get off “the Road.” Still burning with the passion of working with businesses and creating local brands, Bob has now decided to reinvest in his home market on the agency side of media. When his friend and former coworker, Thi Wynn, suggested that he join her at Time Wise, Inc., it was exactly what he was looking for. Bob stated, “The respect and reputation Thi has established over the last fifteen years is enormous.” Time Wise Media is the perfect next door of opportunity for Zuroweste.

Peggi was born in Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada and moved to the Midwest in 1967. While attending Missouri Western State University in 1978 Peggi got her start in the media business as a radio On Air News Reporter with KFOR KUSN and KSFT. In 1983 Peggi switch to the radio commercial advertising sales side of media with KSFT and KFKF. Then in 1989 Peggi entered into television advertising sales with KSMO and WDAF Fox4. After 20 years at Fox4, Peggi retired from televison advertising sales. In 2015 Peggi joined Thi at Time-Wise,Inc. as a Marketing Consultant.
