Hi my name is Derek.
I am currently a sports radio broadcaster and station program director. Prior to radio I played college baseball.
My hours as a broadcaster are very different! I start at 4:30 am and finish before noon, so I have great time during the day to do whatever I want.
I workout, golf and watch sports but I still have plenty of time on my hands. With that extra time I do a lot of reading and exploring. It's funny how AFTER college you decide you really want to learn. Books are obviously a great tool but also podcasts. Being someone who his a talker, I love to listen, and podcasts are oozing with information. People share their expertise and experiences which is such a great way to learn. It also can give you the courage to try things yourself, which is what brings me here.
Journalism is in my blood. My father and his father are/were broadcasters. Being around them for all my life has really taught me how to relate to people and understand how important communication is.
