I'll be honest with ya, my inspiration for getting into this business did not come from Howard Stern. Nope, my inspiration came from my cousin Lorraine.
When I was about 9 years old my cousin Lorraine began working at a local AM radio station known as WBVP/WMBA. She did a show called "Yankee Trader" which was a program that was basically an auction over the airwaves. Being that I was 9 years old I didn't care much for the show. To be honest the only reason why I tuned in was to listen to her talk.
The idea of her being on the radio was fascinating to me. It sparked an interest and I instantly knew that working in radio was what I wanted to do. So here I am pursuing my dream and hoping to better myself.
I currently work for the same local radio station that my cousin used to worked for WBVP/WMBA. Hopefully this website will help me expand my horizons.

RADIO EXPERIENCE AM/FM
AM/FM Broadcasting - I hold a part time position at 1230 WBVP-1460 WMBA AM as a Producer for a sports program that involves local football games. I also co-host an hour wrap up show following the football games.

ONLINE BROADCASTING - I have been involved in many online multimedia projects such as podcasting, streaming audio, etc..
30,000 - 40,000
MULTIMEDIA ACCOMPLISHMENTS - One of my greatest accomplishments was being the owner of a podcasting network. The purpose of this network was to provide a social media platform that would allow podcasters to distribute their podcasts without paying the fee of an rss feed.
SOCIAL MEDIA - I used my podcasting network social media page to deliver a message about breast cancer, which later turned into a benefit called Concert for the Cause. This concert was an idea that originated in 2012 and become reality on September 27th 2013 at the Hard Rock Café in Pittsburgh. It was an instant success and because of which the benefit became a yearly event.
