I always thought radio was so Oz-like. Who is the person behind that voice? The Internet, Web cams, and such have since changed all that, but listening is still paramount. I marvel at how I ended up on other side of the curtain. I did some radio in college. (And I must be one of the few examples of someone who actually used her degree in real life – I majored in journalism, concentrating in broadcast journalism, with a minor in English, at Boston University, then went on to graduate school at NYU.) Yet I really started in radio years after, following much time in print journalism, actually, financial journalism in New York City, including covering World Bank and International Monetary Fund meetings here and abroad. After several years, I put down the pen for the microphone, and began my radio career in Orange County, at WTBQ in Florida, NY, where I was the morning show co-host and news anchor. It was here my love for the local life took hold. I then went to public radio - the NPR affiliate out of Albany, for which I was the Hudson Valley Bureau Chief. Some years later, they let me work here at WHUD, for the morning-drive news and as news director. This was all going swimmingly until I just could not pass up an opportunity to work on a project for my ole public radio station, WAMC. Under a National Science Foundation grant, I reported for and produced a national radio series on women with disabilities in science, technology, engineering, and math. After finishing the project, the timing was right, and WHUD welcomed me back in the afternoons, during which I sit in the anchor chair, sharing with you the news as you spend time with the wonderful Andy Bale.
