Moment you knew you wanted to be in Radio: Back in my High School Photography class, a representative from my then College came in to tell us all about the Photography program there and while looking over the booklet I noticed that they had a Radio Broadcasting program there as well. Seeing that took my memory back in time to when I was younger and how I always loved the radio as well how all the On-Air personalities got to do all these awesome things and that someday I would be on their making people smile and saying “Dude that sounds AWESOME” the way it did for me.
