I have two seasons of play-by-play experience for professional baseball teams and experience working for two radio stations.
During my first baseball season, with the Schaumburg Flyers, I was solely responsible for the Internet broadcast of the first 63 games of the season. I had to set-up and teardown all of my equipment as well as host a pre- and post-game shows which included interviews with players, coaches, and other members of the organization.
My second season behind the microphone, with the Quad Cities River Bandits, I acted as the media relations/play-by-play intern. During this season, I was able to learn and grow in my broadcasting abilities. I spent the majority of the season coupled on the air with the Director of Media Relations, but I was alone on the air for two of the games that season.
As well as working for baseball teams, I have also worked for two radio stations. I interned for KRLD NewsRadio Dallas, where I worked for the sports department during the Texas Rangers baseball season. During that summer, I recorded and edited Rangers games and edited out the highlights for use by the Sports Director the next morning. I also screened phone calls during the post-game show.
I worked for KLLL Lubbock during my senior year at Texas Tech University and operated the soundboard for their remote shows as well as played a role on the morning show. This was my favorite radio experience because I got the chance to use my sense of humor and see what it was like to be part of a morning show team.
I have been interested in radio from the very beginning. Whether its describing the flight of a homerun as it leaves the ballpark, making jokes with others during the early hours of the morning, or simply being in control of the board at the station while someone else is in the field; I have enjoyed every job Ive ever had in radio and I am just looking for that one opportunity to begin my career working in this industry.
