In 1978, Don had the foresight to explore and invest in the world of video technology.

When he  is not at work you can find him on the pickleball court or playing with my grandchildren.  Don spends most weekends at Terre du Lac water skiing or relaxing around the fire pit, looking at the lake with his wife, children, grandchildren, and friends. Don and Cindy also enjoy traveling and hope to continue seeing more of the

US and abroad.

Bill helped his brother build Modern Communications in 1978 after graduating from St. Louis University.  Over the years, he has formed relationships that guided and taught him about the Professional and Broadcast Industry.  When Bill is not at the office, you can find him hanging out with family or at one of his grandkids' games.  In the summer, he's at the lake swimming, boating and water skiing.  Bill still manages to sneak in a round of golf every now and then.
