As Vice President of Media Sales for Cox Media Group Ohio, James Cosby leads our sales teams to achieve revenue and market share goals.  He earned his sales stripes the hard way, starting out as a sales trainee for a television station in Richmond, Virginia. 

That hard work paid off as James now leads the media consultants for the top media brands in the region, including WHIO AM/FM, K99.1 FM, Dayton Daily News and the #1 CBS Affiliate in the country, WHIO-TV.  Since he began his career with Cox Media Group in 1990, James has seen many changes, but none as impactful as the growth of digital audiences.  James is committed to making sure our clients are reaching their target customers, using our full suite of digital products, as well as our radio stations, TV stations and newspapers.

James was honored with the Sales Executive Award and the Black Achievement Award in Richmond, Virginia.  He volunteered with Big Brothers, Big Sisters in Atlanta and serves as a mentor for several programs in Dayton.  James loves his family, funky music, and Cleveland Browns football.  In his spare time, you can find him looking up YouTube videos of epic old concerts.
