I’ve worked with CD102.5 for 28 years.  What started out as a college internship, moved into a promotions job, and went right on up to general manager and finally, a couple of years ago, I became the owner. While I can’t imagine doing anything else, it’s not all rock stars and parties.  Let’s just say every day is an adventure.


I’m proud of my role in this station’s success as a business.  It is one of the only remaining independently owned and operated alternative stations in the top 100 markets in the country. That’s quite a feat these days.  And every day I get to work with an amazing group of people who have played no small role in this success.


One of the things that is at the core of what we do as a privately-owned radio station, and I believe is essential to our success, is that we are highly invested in the City of Columbus, its people, and its organizations and events. I wouldn’t have it any other way.  I believe passionately that the radio station has a responsibility to help make Columbus a better place. The localization is the lifeblood of the radio station.


We do this in a variety of ways.  Our CD102.5 for the Kids charity, which since its founding 20 years ago has raised more than $1 million dollars that have gone to support local charities committed to helping children and families in need throughout Central Ohio.  Our annual Andyman-a-Thon, named after my good friend John Andyman Davis, a long-time DJ and program director at the station, raises more than $50,000 each year to support CD102.5 for the Kids.


The station’s Green Team, a volunteer group of CD102.5 staff and friends is dedicated to the beautification of Columbus and fighting environmental abuse. The CD102.5 Green Team has been recognized as a leader in litter clean up and has received many awards over the years and adopted clean up areas all over the city.


CD102.5 also supports the local cultural and human service communities, offering media opportunities to an array of non-profit organizations whose budgets may not otherwise support such promotion.


But perhaps most importantly, CD102.5 supports Columbus musicians. I believe Columbus is a music city.  The station wouldn't be here if that weren't true.  People in Columbus love music, and they love their local musicians.  We do too.  So the station regularly provides airtime for local bands and slots in our annual concerts for local acts.


 I am proud of how much CD102.5 is part of the fabric of the Columbus community, and how much they are a part of us. Columbus is may be my adopted home but it is most definitely my home.
