Happy Anniversary!!!

Written by

I'll try to keep this as short as possible. This week marks my 9th anniversary here at WQMX's parent company Rubber City Radio Group! I've known this is what I wanted to do since I was 10 years old - 25 years ago!! (YIKES). I was lucky enough to have an internship class at Stow High School that got me an internship with the Akron Public Schools' station, as well as with a radio reading station for the blind community owned by Goodwill Industries.

In college I had people at my internship try to talk me out of a career in broadcasting. I knew that if I didn't at least try it, I would kick myself for the rest of my life! About 18 months after graduating from The Ohio Center for Broadcasting (now Ohio Media School), I was hired at our sister station WAKR to work sports and talk shows. Next, out of the blue, I got an opportunity to work a weekend here at WQMX and haven't looked back! That was four years ago. About three years ago, I achieved my dream job and get to play the best country music for you five days a week. I love my job and can't imagine doing anything else!!
