What have you learned from working with KSDB? How does that helped you with your current job?
I fell in love with radio at KSDB. I developed invaluable skills and lifelong friendships; and made connections that have helped me along the way!
What advice would you give to the current staff/DJs?
Try something outside your comfort zone. Don’t be afraid to get on the air and share what you love – music, information, sports, your opinion. And save what you do! It helps when you’re putting a resume together down the road.
