What an honor…how the hell did this happen?

What an honor…how the hell did this happen?

Well, I’m not real good at blowing my own horn.  I’ve always been uncomfortable with attention, being in the limelight, etc.  This year I’ve been chosen as one of four Local Broadcast Legends in Wisconsin.  At first I was thinking “Oh no…the spotlight”.  As time gets closer to the Keynote Luncheon at the WBA Summer Conference on June 13 I’m starting to beam a little.  It is an honor to be recognized in this field along with three other great Wisconsin broadcasters. A LOT of very talented broadcasters have graced the airwaves in Wisconsin over the years.  To be chosen as one of them has finally hit me that it is truly an honor. I have such wonderful people that I work for and incredible people I work with that are a big part of this.  Also having a part in this is the wonderful listeners over the years.  I’ve met so many people and many have become lifelong friends.  I’ve also had the pleasure of working with some great people over the years too!  Now granted there have been a few ass-hats I’ve worked with (don’t we all) but they are few and far between LOL.  I had to get that in there. The folks I have the pleasure to work with now are BY FAR the best people I’ve been associated with and I thank them so much. To have a great boss and co-workers that are like family is indeed a luxury in today’s world.  Raising two Daughters completely on my own as well as trying to have a career in broadcasting wasn’t easy. That experience helped mold my career and having the support of family and many co-workers has been priceless.  So there…I blew my horn and life goes on.  You can read more about it here.

Thank You ALL.

What a weekend!

What a weekend!

WOW!  It was somewhat expected on Friday July 19 but not quite as bad as it got.  WRLO was knocked off the air at about 8pm.  The storm is one of the worst the Public Service workers have seen in 20 years.  As of Monday July 22 many people in the Elcho/Summit Lake areas are…read more »
