TIM, the new CEO Labriola proposes a transformation of the offer


First meeting for the TIM Board of Directors after the appointment of the Chief Executive Officer Pietro Labriola. On Wednesday, January 26, 2022, the Board of Directors examined the proposals of the new CEO for the two-year period from the current year to 2024.

The real industrial plan will be presented to I recommend next March 2nd. For the moment, the Labriola guidelines have as common point the desire to transform the offer by orienting itself more and more towards the development of services for businesses. During the meeting, the CEO underlined how important it is to undertake this "transformation" of the offers and services in the Cloud, IoT and Cybersecurity sectors by leveraging above all the skills and technological assets already acquired by the Group.

Another important action not to be overlooked concerns the strict control of costs and operating results. Attention also to stakeholders, who must ensure an industrial growth prospect that is "stable and lasting".

In the press release published after the Board of Directors, mention is also made of the indicative and non-binding expression of interest advanced by KKR & Co., the US fund that could acquire TIM in the coming months. The proposal will be analyzed by an “ad hoc” Committee which is still working alongside the financial advisors to compare it with the Group's prospects and the various strategic alternatives. At the same time, KKR is in talks with some banks to strengthen its offer: the fund has already involved some giants such as JP Morgan, Citi and Morgan Stanley; the intention, now, is to contact Unicredit, Intesa Sanpaolo and other credit institutions of international importance.

'Tim had that voice of God': South Florida radio personality 'The Byrdman' dies at 68

South Florida radio personality Tim 'The Byrdman' Byrd dies at 68

The unmistakable voice of popular South Florida radio personality Tim Byrd was silenced Thursday when he died while being treated for pneumonia.

His death ends a well-traveled broadcasting career that included stops in places as varied as New York City, Phoenix and two stints in South Florida. For the past two years, Byrd, who was 68, was the early morning DJ at True Oldies Channel 95.9 FM in the Palm Beaches and 106.9 FM on the Treasure Coast.

“You’re flying high with the Byrdman,” was the DJ’s signature line to listeners.

“Tim had that voice of God,” said Vic Canales, president of Vic Canales Media Group of Palm Beach Gardens, owner of the stations. “He had a certain style and savoir faire about him. He was just cool. There was never a bad day when you listened to Tim Byrd on the radio. He always put a smile on your face.”

Even people who didn’t listen to the West Palm Beach resident on the radio may have known of him.

“This guy was very involved in the community,” said Raymond Hernandez, vice president of programming at the stations, and a close friend. He was all about … always going the extra mile.”

Byrd’s work with charities included the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and the Salvation Army. He met his wife, Sally, in 2003 at an annual Leukemia and Lymphoma Man of the Year event.

Tim Byrd's radio career spanned much of the East Coast

The Tennessee native got his first radio job after he walked into a family-owned radio station in little Johnson, S.C., the self-proclaimed “Peach Capital of the World,” and asked to speak to the owner.

From there it was on to Jacksonville, Charlotte, Winston-Salem and Cleveland, before heading to New York City. There, he worked with Don Imus and Howard Stern at WNBC, and then at WPIX.

That was followed by stints in Phoenix and Washington, D.C. and West Palm Beach, where Byrd worked at KOOL 105.5 years before joining the oldies station in 2020. He also hosted a local podcast, wrote a blog and started a voice-over business.

There was no mistaking Byrd’s sonorous voice, which seemed designed for broadcasting.

“He had that great deep voice that just vibrated through your speakers,” Canales said. “When you listened to Tim Byrd on the radio, he was like your big brother. He was just a warm, comforting voice.”

Hernandez had worked with Byrd at two other stations before recruiting his friend to come to the True Oldies Channel, which plays tunes from the ‘60s and ‘70s.

He and Canales described Byrd as a model employee. “He never said no about anything from sales, to promotions to concerts – he was always there to figure out the best way to talk about it on the air,” Hernandez said.

“He was really a true veteran professional. He was very easy to work with. Everywhere he’s been, he’s had a huge audience. You know that by the people that call in, write in and participate in social media,” Hernandez added.

Wherever he went, The Byrdman had a huge audience

“Listeners adored him,” Canales said. “They would come to the radio station and bring him breakfast. They would cook a dish and they would wait for him outside to give it to him. They felt as if they personally knew Tim.”

Others just showed up at the radio station and knocked on the door hoping to say hello to Byrd, Canales added. He’d tell them to wait for him in the lobby and they’d talk afterward.

“He treated everybody equally. We would walk by the conference room an hour or two hours after Tim got off the radio and he would be in there talking to some listeners.”

Byrd took a routine holiday break in December and was due to return to work on Jan. 18, Canales said. It was only then that he learned of Byrd’s illness. Still, he wasn’t alarmed.

“Tim was a healthy man. He took care of himself. He ate the right foods. He took vitamins. He exercised. There was never a doubt in my mind that Tim Byrd would be back on the radio.”

In addition to his wife, Byrd is survived by two stepchildren, Rola and Adie of Orlando and his mother, Bethany, of Hickory, N.C.
