Mr. Zimmer, a well-respected radio pioneer, started the company in 1956 with KDEX-FM in Dexter, Mo. In 1966, he started KZYM-FM in Cape Girardeau, one of the first country music stations in the U.S. A life-long love for broadcasting and passion for exceptional customer service earned Mr. Zimmer the coveted Missouri Broadcasters Association Lifetime Achievement Award in 1996. It is his passion and pioneering that still drives Zimmer Communications today.
Zimmer Communications has grown since then and has advanced to meet the evolving marketing demands of our clients. What began as an elite group of radio stations has advanced to a team that’s as unique as your business. We’re a Missouri-based, family-owned company with 13 Missouri radio stations, 3 magazine publications, and departments for digital, social media, inbound marketing, website design/development, audio, video, photography, voicework, and graphic design.
