I never let July 15th go by without recognizing it as an important anniversary in my life. The 15th fell on Sunday this year, so I’m just now getting around to mentioning it.
July 15th, 1970 I began my broadcasting career as a news reporter at K-W-B-B 1410 AM in Wichita. Chuck Schechner took a chance in hiring me. I had no experience. I like to think Chuck saw something in me that might evolve into a decent broadcaster. Later, I got a chance to hire Chuck at K-F-H. The past 25 years Chuck’s been working in the Dallas market.
Yes, I was green … with a little college and the Columbia School of Broadcasting … and a decent mid-range voice. I’m thankful that people in this business have given me opportunities to develop as a professional. I’ve worked for good companies and good bosses … and I still enjoy of talking on the radio. It’s been fun. 42 more?
Our thought for today is from Franklin P. Jones:
“Experience is that marvelous thing that enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.
