Paige Nienaber

Paige Nienaber’s life can be broken down into “Before ‘Jimmy Langer, Child Pet Pathologist’” and “After ‘Jimmy Langer, Child Pet Pathologist’”.

The first part of his life has been hashed, rehashed and hashed-over repeatedly through various “Where Are The Now”, “Behind The Scenes” TV programs and hundreds of Entertainment Tonight and People magazine stories.

Following a onetime appearance in a Red Barn family restaurant TV commercial, Paige was off to Los Angeles.

As Jimmy “Scooter” Langer, a teen medical savant, he helped pet owners get to the bottom of who/what had killed their beloved pets. Every episode had him fighting his boss, Detective Ryker of the Animal Crimes Unit who would be satisfied with the initial report and felt that Jimmy was wasting time and resources on what was obviously an open-and-shut case. With the help of his asst. Sam Fujiyama, Jimmy would find the break he needed, use his catch phrase, “Sam, I could kiss ya!” and everyone would retire to Jimmys for softserve icecream.

If this sounds remarkably like the plotline to “Quincy MD”, well, Paige thought so too. His lawsuit which he eventually lost on an episode of “Peoples Court” (there was hope that the publicity would spur international syndication) left him broke. With his parents having absconded to Uruguay with a small fortune they’d built up by managing his career, Paige was 18 and at a crossroads.

Uneducated. Untalented. Unskilled. With no prospects, a career counselor at a methadone clinic in St. Louis told Paige that he was qualified for only three fields: fire spotter for the Forest Service, softball umpire, or Radio.

In a defining moment, he chose Radio.

He worked at stations in Portland, Minneapolis, Charlotte and San Francisco and for the past 20 years has been consulting stations around the world on Marketing and Promotions. He’s created contests and campaigns that have made hundreds of thousands of dollars. He’s helped morning shows to market-leading numbers. He is the go-to person for hundreds of AE’s and Programmers who need ideas and “We need them by 5 pm or the world will end.”

And he loves it. He gets to work with fun, talented and creative people. Together they’re able to put on attention-getting promotions that get press worldwide. His ebooks have raised thousands for charity, but, just in case, if you’re an agent looking to bring back Jimmy Langer, Paige is ready to bag it all. Email him at nwcpromo@earthlink.net and he can be on-set with a portfolio and personal assistant in 5 hours (domestic).


Testimonials

  • Steve Jones , VP/Programming Newcap Radio
    Paige Nienaber makes our team more creative, brave, and bold, and makes our stations more successful. You wouldn't want to be in a radio battle against him, so hire him before your competitor does.
    Despite his sketchy criminal past, Paige Nienaber simply makes our radio stations better in every respect. And he's stolen surprisingly few office supplies from us.
    Paige Nienaber is the top promotions consultant in the African nation of Namibia. What do the Namibians know that you don't?
  • Steven J Goldstein, Executive Vice President - Saga Communications
    Paige is able to cut through a lot of the corporate thinking and get us back to listener first, and fun first.
  • Annmarie Topel, Market Manager - Saga Communications/Milwaukee.
    There are things in life that are irritating but necessary—like pulling Styrofoam packing from a box. Paige Nienaber is kind of like that Styrofoam. In a world cluttered with entertainment options, you need a creative engine to stand out. It’s insurance that your product will survive. Paige helps us cut thru the clutter with ideas that make noise and create a stir. He delivers the unthinkable, sometimes the undo-able, but never the cliché. Milwaukee Radio Group brought Paige on for a short run to assist us in the creative department. He has now become part of our fabric and what we consider a necessary tool in separating us from all the choices out there. He has given us money-making, stand-out ideas… with a side of irritation. You gotta love him—and for $7.25 an hour, he’s a steal.
  • Margaret Loubser, Senior Manager - Programming Radiowave 96.7 FM
    Some may wish to keep him in a box but Paige operates best outside of it. Think of any promotion or on air stunt that's been a huge success and chances are they're the brainchild of Paige.
    He has a powerful and creative mind and knows how to roll out the concepts effortlessly. He understands how the on air side of a station works and knows exactly how to create water cooler talk.
    Paige has been a great addition to the Radiowave team .
    Best thing is he has two amazing daughters with a great sense of humor and if he really wants to provide the world a great service he'll train them to take over from him so that radio NEVER has a dull moment.
  • Ronnie Stanton, Operations Manager Astral Radio Vancouver
    Paige is insane - in a good way! He is energetic, always on topic and has an instinctual knack for knowing the play in any given situation that can make your station pop through its promotions and stunts.
  • M. Lewis Sauerwein, VO’s
    You ask many questions and yet you still fail to answer much. I spent my time answering you questions here, and even at the suggestion of my fellow patriots that I am wasting my time. Well, at this point- I must agree with them. Plus, the one comment you made (which was removed btw) where "you were laughing your ass off" at all this is reason enough for me to block you from entering any further comments. If you see this all as some sort of JOKE- then we don't need any more of your comments. It is YOUR attitude among so many in the USA that has caused this country to go straight to hell morally and ethically. You should be TOTALLY ASHAMED of yourself. You are a disgrace Paige Nienaber to the USA and to God. Good luck with your idiocy - YOU'RE GONNA NEED IT. Now- get the hell off my post- parasite.
  • Joel Denver, President of All Access.com.
    Paige Nienaber is truly one of the promotional geniuses of our time despite having a difficult name — with an asexual origin — to pronounce. His twisted mind is always working overtime. We are proud to carry his/her/its reports on AllAccess.com each day. And, if you subscribe to the service, you’ll find it’s worth many times more than the toilet paper it’s printed on — which allows you to double-purpose it!
  • Dave Ryan, KDWB
    There is only a handful of people in this business who come up with the majority of fresh ideas, and Paige is one of them. I call Paige an ‘evil genius’ because his ideas truly take things to the next level
  • David Dubose, Vice President/General Manager for Cox Broadcasting
    I think Paige Neinaber is one of the most important weapons we have in keeping 95.7 Jamz at the top of the ratings for 7 years in nearly every demo. He is is remarkable, very talented, crazy, and despite all of this our sales department loves him because he helps generate great marketing solutions for clients
  • Erik Bradley, APD/MD at B-96/Chicago
    I was a Promotions Coordinator at WCKZ/Charlotte when Paige came on board in 1989. Did I learn a lot from him? Uh…no. In fact, I tried to filter out all his bad advice and ideas as much as I could. If I’d actually listened to all that crap he spewed, I’d probably have failed out of Radio and be working at a Waffle House as a fry cook. Thank God they let me get into the Music Department so I didn’t have to hang around remotes and listen to stories about how great he was and how cool he was and how chicks dug him.
