I have an unhealthy obsession with audience experience and telling folks about events before they happen. I guess that’s what happens when you’ve been a DJ for KKOW AM-FM, a web producer for KOAM TV/Fox 14, a reporter for the Columbus Daily Advocate (when it was still an evening newspaper), and did publicity and community outreach for a small rural school like USD 247 Southeast. Once A Gorilla, Always A Gorilla.
