New York - Feb 8, 2013 - After 15.5 years, Tom Ray is leaving WOR Radio in New York City. During Ray's tenure at WOR, he had taken the station from an older analog facility into the digital age, culminating in the move of the WOR studio facility to downtown Manhattan. This was the world's first large scale Axia deployment. Subsequently, he built WOR a new state‐of‐the‐art transmitter facility in the New Jersey Meadowlands, retiring the former Lyndhurst, NJ, facility that had served WOR for 40 years.

Ray has been a major proponent of HD Radio (IBOC) operation, and made WOR the first high-power full time AM HD Radio station in the world. He also has published a book, "HD Radio Implementation", published by Focal Press in conjunction with the Society of Broadcast Engineers.

Ray has served on the board of directors of the Society of Broadcast Engineers, was chairman of SBE Chapter 15 in New York City for nine years, has served on the NAB Broadcast Engineering Conference Committee several times, serving as chairman of the committee twice. Until the acquisition of WOR by Clear Channel Media and Entertainment in December 2012, he was corporate director of engineering of Buckley Broadcasting and chief engineer of WOR Radio.

Ray's immediate plan is to consult as Tom Ray Broadcast Consulting. He can be reached at tomray@tomrayconsulting.com, or at 845‐418‐5065.
