Broadcast Radio Producer
Working Behind the Scenes to Make Your On-Air Talent Shine

I am passionate radio broadcasting! I love being in the studio, working behind-the-scenes, making your station and on-air personalities shine. I enjoy the challenge of working in a fast-paced environment with quick thinking on my feet.

I am very much interested in radio production for a news-talk radio show, a morning show, or a news program. I enjoy working under pressure, learning new things, having the opportunity to be analytical, strategic, and spot on with the clock.
