Why Working in Radio in Utica is the BEST!
I've always loved what I do for a living - being in radio is great. But today, something big clicked in, and it's all thanks to you!
I'm just a few weeks away from celebrating my four-year anniversary of being in 'the biz.' With that coming up, I've been thinking a lot about my radio career - things I love, things that are not how I expected, and the changes from moving from one radio area to the next.
Today, something big happened. As 'Lunch at the Lite Cafe' was going on (weekdays at noon), the people calling in made me realize something. This is why I love being in radio - the callers! It's not just a request show, it's a chance for me to talk one-on-one with others in our area.
Conversations can go from any topic - although the Comets are usually a big one! With Rob calling in to see if I got all my work done from the day before (so I could get out early and enjoy the beautiful day today), to David telling me it sounds like my cold is going away.
Simple conversations that may not mean a lot to someone, but to me - it's the world. Today was a huge reminder of why I do, what I do. It's all because of you! The listeners! That's what makes Utica feel like home to me - and I couldn't feel this way without you. So a big thanks to all the listeners, all the callers, and to the people in this community - making me feel like I've lived here my whole life!
