I started working in radio while enrolled at Spring Arbor University. From the Fall of 2011 until graduation in Spring of 2013, I was employed at 106.9 Home.fm, a commercial radio station that plays feel-good summer hits around the clock. I worked on-air 7-9 p.m. weekdays and 1-3 p.m. weekends.
Under the title of Administrative Artistic Assistant, I produced various audio projects for Spring Arbor University’s Communication Department. My first project was a 3 hr and 45 min audio book that I edited, recorded, and promoted for Clark Cothern’s, At the Heart of Every Great Father The following year, I performed the same audio treatment to Wally Metts’, The Santa Papers.
I also created Counterpoint, a student-lead audio series that worked to inform the listener with news, inspire with art, and challenge with different perspectives.
After I graduated I started to intern at WGTE, writing a small podcast series about the struggles of being a recent college grad. The thirteen-part series was initially scheduled to air, but then was moved to an online platform after WGTE decided to hire me as Morning Classics host.
Morning Classics Halloween Special:
I also host NPR’s Morning Edition for a few months each summer while its regular host is traveling abroad.
I also produce an arts and culture show for the same program. The series is called The Rough Draft Diaries and it airs every Wednesday morning at 7:45 am.
