Donald G. Bradley

Donald Bradley spent a half-century in Montana broadcasting. After beginning his career as announcer and later program director for KGVO Missoula, Don Bradley co-founded KRTV in Great Falls in 1958 with long-time friend Dan Snyder. He managed KRTV and Billings' KULR and then became national sales manager and later vice president of operations for the Montana Television Network from 1969-1984. He also managed KTVH Helena and ended his career again managing the station he helped found.

Bradley’s management philosophy: "You do what you can do at the moment and go on to the next thing." He consistently won the respect of people who worked for him.

Says a former KRTV director: "He put the entire medium in perspective for me. For someone who has accomplished so much, Don Bradley is so humble."
