Hometown: O’Neill, Nebraska

Why did you get into broadcasting? I didn’t have any idea for what I wanted my career to look like until my final year of high school when I started working at Good News Radio. I immediately loved everything about it. I enjoy the technical aspects, I like listening to music, and I’m happy to be a source of news and information to listeners. By furthering my education in broadcasting here at Northeast, it has become clear that I’m on the right path.

What do you aspire to do with your career? I would like to either continue working at Good News Radio or go work for another station elsewhere.

Why did you get into broadcasting?   I have always had a fascination with radio and TV.  At the early age of 3, I was hosting news and weather reports for our family videos.  During high school, I would much rather play music at dances than actually do the dancing, and I would rather video record the football games than play the sport.  I have been hooked on radio and music since I was 5, when I got my first tape recorder for Christmas.
