For those of you not near a radio or computer, listen to the feature below:
My first time on the radio was as a teenager (thanks to Brian “The Doc” Halliday and his Inside Soccer show). I’ve had the radio bug ever since. In fact, it was radio that drove me into a Broadcast Writing class at Palomar College. That class was the catalyst for switching my major to Radio & TV, which is how we all ended up here.
Radio took a painfully shy kid who preferred to be invisible and it gave her a voice. It taught that kid that she could speak and others would listen, an incredible gift. For these reasons, I will always love radio. I haven’t done any on-air work since I graduated from Biola, so it was extra special to have this opportunity on KNX.
