Q: What was your first job at WUSF and what did you do for the station?

A: WUSF Public Media had four stations in the 1980s. A radio and TV station in Tampa and a radio and TV station in Fort Myers. I was hired to be the station manager of WSFP FM in Ft. Myers in 1992. In 1994, I was managing both radio stations and in 1997 when Florida Gulf Coast University was built, USF gave the two Fort Myers stations to FGCU and they became WGCU FM and TV. I came to Tampa in 1997 as part of that transition. [More]

Q: What was your first job at WUSF and what did you do for the station?

Q: What was your first job at WUSF and what did you do for the station?

A: I started on Valentine’s Day in 1989 and was a board operator here while I was attending USF.  At the time there were many of us students working here, part-time, announcing the breaks in programs like All Things Considered, which was my shift.  We recorded the programs in the equipment room and took hourly transmitter readings, among other things.  This was a couple of years before the First Gulf War helped to generate the need for increasing news service both from WUSF and from NPR.  [More]
