The Hit Music Princess

Started off as PD at my college station WWNW in New Wilmington, PA. My first paying job was board opping at CBS Radio's Star 100.7 in Pittsburgh. I part-timed at Star 104 in Erie PA for over a year and at Froggy in Pittsburgh. I just started my first full time job doing middays in Meridian, MS at WJDQ (CHR). Every step in my career is exciting!

Last weekend...I had a family emergency so I had to go home, but the good thing was I got to see the Christina Aguilera concert in Pittsburgh with Danity Kane and the Pussycat Dolls. AWESOME!!

This weekend...I'm headed to the rodeo. I don't know exactly what they do at rodeos, but I will find out!

For some reason I always look back on summers as benchmarks in my career/life.

Summer of 04--I was interning at WQED-FM in Pittsburgh, doing lots of prod and understanding how public radio worked. Flagship station B94 was pulled that summer. Just before the station's end, I entered their DJ contest to get a weekend shift, but didn't even make it to the semi-finals. "Pieces of Me" by Ashlee Simpson was a hit and Jay-Z's "99 Problems" was hot.

Summer of 05--I had my first apartment and was living in New Wilmington working 40 hours a week at Titan Radio (news, jock shifts, PD duties). This was my first sight at the difference between being on-air once a week vs every day. This was also the summer of my board op era at Star 100.7 in the Burgh. I worked every Sunday 6-11 AM but also filled in overnights. Those were my days of never sleeping. I had the Click Five's "Just the Girl" on repeat.

Summer of 06--I had just graduated from college and moved to Erie to continue my first part-time on air job at Star 104. I wanted to be at the station's beck and call for summer fill-in shifts. I had 4 jobs all over town and had done each daypart at the station by the summer's end. I became Chandler's "Made" student and grew through his guidance. The stalkers were at their wildest and Nelly Furtado's "Promiscuous" was hot on the airwaves.

Summer of 07--Now I have moved FAR away from home and have my first full time radio gig in Meridian, Mississippi with Q951. I'll get back to you with the follow-up in September!
