Green River College has a great broadcasting program that prepares you to work in professional radio. Green River has two radio stations where you get to practice what you learn, and on these stations, you don’t just get to be a DJ… You can run the station too. You can be their program director, choose the music they play, be part of their promotions department.
Being in KGRG, one of the stations, was one of the most fun times ever for Pedro and myself. We learned so much and met people in the business, which eventually meant getting jobs in professional radio. We believe in that program and we’re not alone.
We were recently joined by two other KGRG alumni… Matt Mikolas, also known as Slickhawk, he produces the morning show on 950 AM KJR and he has his own show too, and Gordon Hultengren, morning show producer on KISS 106.1 and he also does production for all iHeart Media Seattle stations.
And we had one more guest… the man that guided us all the way to where we are today. Tom Evans Krause, Director of Broadcast Operations at Green River College. Listen to our fun talk here...
