Actually, my new gig is as a Production Director for Ottumwa Radio. That's 1240 KBIZ News/Talk/Info; KISS FM 101.5 Classic Rock; KRKN New Country 104.3; and 92.7 KTWA Today's Hits and Yesterday's Favorites. No, I will not be able to play your request for Eric Church. I can not get you some autographed Cheaptrick swag and I can not hook you up with tickets to the Tesla concert.
Basically, I will be writing, voicing and producing ads, promos and other content that is prerecorded -- everything you hear between the music and the live talking on those stations.
The plan is for me to eventually produce and be a voice on the live morning news show and do some live on-air work with the News Director for a couple hours every weekday, then go to my production duties after that. So you early risers around the area can listen for me as you're getting ready for work. That's going to be in the not-too-distant future.
From what I have seen, these seem to be great people to work for and work with. I am thrilled to have this opportunity. They are giving me a shot, and giving me decent pay and good hours. I start on Monday. Wish me luck.
In the meantime, though I can't play your Eric Church, Cheaptrick or Tesla requests on the radio, I can spin some here at IowaScribe!
