I first heard KUNC when I was a student at The University of Northern Colorado desperately trying to get my ‘This American Life’ fix. Little did I know at the time that in just a few years Ira Glass himself would be suggesting that he and I trade glasses at a KUNC sponsored lecture in Boulder. I was the envy of my NPR-junkie friends for weeks afterwards as a result of the ensuing photos.
I joined the team at KUNC in 2008 as the Administrative Assistant, and spent two happy years toiling away assisting the staff, listeners and members before moving into the Operations Administrator position in March of 2010, becoming the Operations Manager (a subtle semantic difference...) in April 2011. My job falls under the programming department here at KUNC, and to get into it more than that I fear would mean using technical jargon you would find both meaningless and boring. Briefly, though, I use various computer programs to make sure the station plays the right things at the right times, as well as doing a little bit of on-air announcing.
I love all the programs on KUNC, but have a soft spot for This American Life, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me and The World Cafe. I live in Loveland, and enjoy spending my spare time trying to teach my cat tricks while my ever-patient partner, Cale, sits idly by.
