Carl Schulhof began his career in broadcast sales in 1979 at WISN-TV in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He had gained an interest in health care while serving as a medic in the U.S. Army. After the Supreme Court’s decision legalizing hospital and physician advertising, Carl started developing information-based, marketing-driven media partnerships. In 1985 Carl joined Gaylord Broadcasting as Corporate Development Director and successfully established health care media partnerships in five of their markets. Forming Schulhof & Associates in 1987, Carl ultimately created successful campaigns with 96 stations in 43 U.S. markets.
