Dwight Cook is President of Houston, Texas based, Sound Works.
At the age of six Dwight was an avid shortwave radio listener with a large collection of QSL cards. Dwight’s on-air radio career started when he was ten, with a home built radio station in his home, broadcasting throughout his neighborhood in his home town of Sarasota. Florida.
While in the tenth grade he landed a position at WKXY-Sarasota, a top-40 station. The following year he landed the afternoon drive slot at a competing rock station. From there his radio career took him to the Tampa, Miami, Chicago and Houston markets. Dwight’s real love was in the area of Production. He served as Production Director at all but the first stations in his career. Dwight also continued his radio career while going to school.
In 1977, Dwight and his wife Karen founded Sound Works.
