Work experience

Radio Broadcasting

I worked more than 15 years in the radio industry in Nashville, Dallas, Lubbock, Amarillo, and Plainview (Texas) from 1986-2000, and I held a variety of positions:

  • Announcer (primarily)
  • Assistant News Director
  • Assistant Program Director
  • Music Director
  • Production Director--writing copy, assigning production to air staff
  • News Director
  • Emceed station promotions, events, remotes, and concerts
  • Conducted interviews
  • Recorded and provided liners from my personal studio for stations in other areas
  • Stations: KZEW, KVOP, WWRB, KKYN, KJZY, KFLP-- I think that's all but there could be a few more in there somewhere.  Most, if not all, independently-owned stations are now defunct because Big Corp bought them up. It was probably the Koch brothers needing write-offs from insolvent radio stations.
