Versatile New England radio guy wants to get back on the air
  • July 2, 2016

I've done everything from traffic logs to newscasts, remotes to music shows in the world of full-service radio over 18 years.  Except climb towers.. I haven't done that.

 

SKILLS

 I project an impeccable public image of your radio station at all times.
 Ability to handle a variety of formats as I came from full-service radio. I’ve held the fort down with Jazz shows, rock shows, newscasts, and crisis coverage, to being in-studio producer of Norwich Hockey, High School basketball, short-track stock car racing and more.
 I understand radio is more than just an on-air business. There’s public files which need to be maintained, transmitter readings, and EAS logging as well. I spent 3 years as a Chief Operator and Director of Compliance.
 Details are extremely important to me. It’s a part of my life.
 Competent with AP Newsdesk, Microsoft Word, Outlook, and Excel (Desktop and Android versions for efficient editing on the go.), Microsoft Office 365, Adobe Audition, Audio Vault, and Simian
 If something needs to be done in a part of the station that I’m not usually a part of, I will dive over backwards to help out and solve a problem. I can be walked through most things over the phone when those moments arise

Education

History major @ Johnson State College
Aug 2014 — Current
I've been taking classes part-time while working in radio full-time. At least until I got let go at WDEV. I obviously would try to move my degree program to Massachusetts upon employment or simply put it on hold.
General Studies @ Lyndon State College
Jan 1998 — May 2002
I realize the timeline says 4 years, however I would later learn that my lethargy was linked to hypothyroidism and sleep apnea. It would take until 2008 for these issues to be properly diagnosed and treated. I pulled out of Lyndon State when I did, with the degree I did not have the energy to do anymore. How they didn't diagnose me sooner? You'll have to ask them. I'm fine now. Radio Vermont Group hung on with me as a part-timer on Sunday nights not saying much until my issues were figured out. It is a very real fact that on any given night without treatment, and this went on for years, I could have died. Ask me about this.
