Our news department won 6 awards for their coverage of various stories.
I did pretty damn well too:
Best Commercial: Little Wonders Learning Center "Raging Terror"
Merit Award: Best Way Disposal "Pretty Stinkin' Innovative"
Best: WSJM Year In Review Promo
Yep, I wrote & produced THREE award winning pieces this year! What? Is my ego HUGE? Hey, it ain't braggin' if you can back it up!
Ok, Ok...Let me have the thrill for today, it'll be back to the grind soon, but for now, I'm pretty freakin' proud of myself & my friends here at the radio stations!

I can't even begin to tell you how swollen my ego has been this week. Just an amazing experience...something I honestly never expected to do again...but here I am, grabbing for my headphones, showprep sheets & heading back into the studio.
If you know me, maybe you're not surprised that I'm back on the radio again. I've heard that from a bunch of folks so far: "You couldn't stay away could you?" or "You're too good not to be on the air" (thank you for that one, that's way too flattering). Fact is, I wasn't sure if I could still do it. It's been nearly 3 years since I'd been on the air and the skills required to be a great personality are different than the skills I use everyday as a Creative Director. Still...I was wonderfully relieved when it all seemed to come back. I still need to work better at it, and that will happen as I spend more time behind the microphone.
I was having a discussion at the office the other day with a co-worker who's spouse hates their job. Even Julie has had her time when she questions what she does everyday from 8-5. I feel terribly sorry for folks who live their lives that way...we've only got 1 shot on this orb...let's do what makes us feel best. After 20 years, I'm still getting that thrill in radio stations!
If you're in southwest Michigan, check out Rock 107 WIRX (107.1fm) and listen for me!
