Got to tell you this radio gig is a blast.
For me it started in Rosetown Saskatchewan where I was the advertising coordinator for a junior department store buying this great media to drive my retail sales goals. In 1989 I moved to this side of the desk helping businesses reach their marketing goals in Stettler as Account Manager. About 2 years later I was blessed to jump into the station manager chair. We moved to Brooks AB and the mighty Q13 about a year and a half later. This oasis in the desert was home for another 2 ½ years. Then we discovered the draw of north central Alberta as the company moved us to Morinville with me working with 4 northern radio markets. A year later we make the wise decision to move to Westlock in 1996. Our children, now all grown up, reside in Westlock and the Calgary area. Norma and I are blessed and enjoy 7 grandchildren.
Today; my responsibilities include leading the dynamic REAL Country 97.9 team plus it takes me to 3 other Northwest FM stations. This includes REAL Country 93.5 in High Prairie, LAKE FM at 92.7 in Slave Lake and 94.3 in Wabasca as well as 94.1The RIVER in Athabasca. It is a privilege to help the stations and sales teams. Newcap Radio is an awesome broadcast company. It works hard to leverage the first social media- radio to provide solid community radio in markets from B.C. to NFLD.
I sure am glad you are listening. Anytime I can help feel free to call at 780-349-4421.
