Happy Anniversary To Me
Boy a lot has changed over these 19 years with the exception of my love of spending my days with you.
Hard to imagine at this point doing anything but radio but truth is that for more than a decade I handled the marketing departments for several companies. I loved those jobs too. The last job in marketing was for an internet company here in Maine called the Maine Internet Works (MINT). I am so thankful for that position not only because it put me ahead of the internet curve but also because it brought me back to Maine. Being in Maine was important little did I know because in just a few year I would lose my Dad and we built so many great memories during that time.
Eventually though MINT was made an offer they couldn't refuse by Adelphia for purchase and I didn't want to go with it. But as providence would have it I had been interested in radio for many years and had been writing and performing MINT's commercials for year. That is where I met Bob Duchesne. Cumulus radio had just purchased an Adult Contemporary station called WEZQ and they were looking for an afternoon host. They asked me to train a few night's with Chuck Foster on Z107.3 to get some airchecks for corporate and the deal was done. I have never looked back. Although when I started I was so nervous it was crazy. Since then we were purchased by Townsquare Media, WEZQ has gone Sports Radio and I moved into afternoons here on I95.
Some of my favorite things over the years have been:
If you have made it this far in this rather long post I just want to take this moment to thank you for being a friend. You are now and have always been the cherry on top of working in radio.
