J Frederick Manning President/CEO

Manning Media, Inc. is a full-service marketing solutions provider. Our mission is to be our customer’s best marketing partner. Our colleagues’ hundreds of years of marketing experience in broadcast, digital advertising, print, direct mail, email marketing, event marketing, and of course, radio advertising allow us to provide advertising agency services without the high cost/retainer/consulting fees of traditional agencies.

Manning Media, Inc.,  based in Frederick and Hagerstown, MD,  originally owned and operated radio stations in the community for 22 years prior to selling the stations in 2005 to Nassau Broadcasting.  In 2012, the radio stations were purchased back from Nassau. Manning formed its digital marketing division in 2014.

Manning owns 106.9 The Eagle, Key 103, 102.1 MORE FM, 93.5 and 100.5 MAX Country and AM1490 WARK (also heard on 98.9FM in Hagerstown and 106.3FM in Frederick). The Manning cluster of stations is traditionally the #1 station group in Frederick and Washington County and the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia.

Manning Media’s high performance in fulfillment, optimization, reporting metrics, results, and return on investment for each digital campaign make us the region’s top digital marketing leader.

The significant competitive advantages that Manning Media presents to our partners is access to over 90% of all display and video inventory on the internet. Having access to this inventory means we reach your customer where they are. Our digital buying also focuses on placement in Tier One Inventory or “above the fold” on the digital page with premium publishers.

A critical element that distinguishes Manning Media from our competitors is that our firm is LOCAL. We are Central Maryland’s largest locally owned and operated media group. Our sales colleagues live and work right here in Maryland. We meet with you in-person, your place or ours, any time.  No 1-800 numbers, no support tickets & no waiting for hours or days to get your questions answered! We dedicate ourselves to 100% satisfaction. Our reputation as a premier marketing partner is well known in the Central Maryland community. We have served local businesses with not only the emerging Digital Display Marketing elements but effectively using our heritage broadcasting services, too.

Although our focus is assisting local businesses, our expertise in the field has enabled us to do many campaigns nationally and globally. We have delivered digital ads to 33 countries on 6 continents. From Fortune 50 companies to companies with 50 employees, we have the experience to deliver your message efficiently and effectively. Contact the marketing experts at Manning Media and let’s begin our marketing conversation.

Best regards,

J Frederick Manning
