Q & A

Why I got into radio:
In all the years of theater work and an educational track that led to teaching, I found that the only industry I was consistently drawn to was public radio, particularly KCFR’s then-split format of news and classical music.

How and why I came to CPR:
Persistence. While still in college, I became a phone volunteer, and from there wrangled a part-time announcer position the year KCFR transformed to CPR.
