Sky Skibosh brings to the table over 34 years of business management experience in the world of professional sports media and public relations. Having established Sky’s The Limit in 1995, he has spent the past nine years traveling in over 35 states.
Sky had the opportunity to work with business leaders, media members and Hall of Fame athletes during his 19 years as PR Director of the Milwaukee Brewers Major League Baseball Team. He uses his unique sense of humor and background in his programs on stress, image, teamwork and leadership to show you how to be successful in life and still have fun.
One of the Best in Baseball
After seeing the Brewers go through four PR directors in their first five years in Milwaukee, Sky stepped in for the next 19 years and directed the club’s media efforts, earning accolades from the baseball and media community nation-wide. He received many national plaudits for his performance while directing such memorable events as the 1982 World Series between his Brewers and the St. Louis Cardinals, as well as Nolan Ryan’s 300th Win and Robin Yount’s 3,000th Hit, to name just a few.
Sky has also had the opportunity to work in the newspaper and radio fields. He is currently a sports editor and columnist with Community Newspapers, handling five of the largest newspapers among the 19 that are published. In 1997 he hosted a popular nationally syndicated weekly talk show on the SportsAmerica Radio Network. He has also been very involved in the Milwaukee radio market, co-hosting a daily morning talk show. Early in his career he was a pioneer in local sports radio, becoming one of the first reporters to incorporate “actualities” (taped interviews) on the air.
Media Perspective led to his success in PR
Sky used his media experience to help him excel when he turned to the public relations world. He understood the media’s job was to break the story, not just wait for the club’s announcement. Having worked in the radio and newspaper venue, he understood what the media needed to be successful and thus was able to make sure they had the tools that they required to make their job as easy as possible. His honesty and integrity when dealing with the media also was one of the major reasons for his success.

Sky was member of the National Speakers Association (NSA) and the Wisconsin Professional Speakers Association (WPSA). He graduated from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee with a BA degree in Mass Communications, focusing on Radio, Television and Journalism.
