Starting A New Job At The End Of The Month

July 13, 2013

I have acccepted a full-time radio news/sports job in Maryville, MO with 97.1 KVVL and 1580 KNIM.  Will be starting at the end of the month.

This all came about pretty quickly.  2 weeks ago I got an unsolicited phone call from Jim Cronin with Nodaway Broadcasting in Maryville.  He told me that he got a referral from a job service I subscribe to (Sportscasters Talent Agency of America -OR- STAA).  Asked me if I was interested, I said sure.  Went down last weekend for an interview with the husband/wife team who run the stations.  Spoke with each of them last Sunday.  They put me up in a hotel to stay overnight to talk with the rest of the staff Monday morning.  Got a call back Tuesday and they offered.  I accepted on Thursday.

I’ll be working with Jim on the morning show.  KVVL (Known as THE VILLE) plays rock.  Will be doing news/sports updates from 6-9am.  Also will produce news/sports for KNIM (Country).  My other duties will include covering city council/school board meetings and doing the play by play for Maryville HS.

Maryville is about 2 1/2 hours southwest of Des Moines, so I won’t be that far away.  It’s also 94 miles away from Kansas City.  Oh and the KNIM is a Royals affiliate.  Can you say tickets??  The bosses are huge Royals fans.

Thank you to all of you for your love and support while I’ve been here in Des Moines.  It’s my hometown and I’ll always hold it high.  I have a good feeling that the future is bright for this Old Radio Dog.  Please think of me/keep me in your prayers during my transition.
