ATLANTIC CITY — Veteran marketing guru Dave Coskey (Mediaworks, Philadelphia 76ers, the House of Blues, the Borgata) is leaving his four-year post as VP of marketing at the Borgata Casino Hotel & Spa.
According to a published report, Coskey (pictured), who has a residence in Avalon, Cape May County, is the new president of Longport Media, LLC, a company that purchased five of the Atlantic Broadcasting radio company’s stations for $4.2 million earlier this month.
The five local stations, based in Linwood, include WOND 1400AM, WBSS-AM 1490, WTKU-FM 98.3, WWAC-FM 102.7 and The Shark: WMGM-FM 103.7.
Reached via e-mail, Joe Lupo, senior vice president of operations at the Borgata, says that Coskey will be missed.
“I would like to thank Dave for the numerous contributions he has made to Borgata over the last four years,” Lupo tells Atlantic City Weekly. “The expertise, passion and integrity that he brought to our management team, as well as his leadership within Borgata and the community, have contributed to Borgata’s continued success. We have been fortunate to have been associated with Dave, who is universally well-liked and well known within both the Atlantic City and Philadelphia regions. While we will certainly miss him, we wish him much success in his new position.”
Lupo says for the “immediate future, he will continue to oversee the marketing department as has been in the past.”
