My broadcasting career began at KBHU FM, the college radio station for Black Hills State University in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. My first on-air shift coincided with my first week of college. In the second semester I started a speciality music show called ‘The Creepy Sleepy Hour’ – a brand that persists today. My sophomore year I joined the KBHU staff as the Assistant News Director. I moved quickly to Music Director, then Program Director. I completed my college career as the first General Manager to staff KBHU ‘solo’ (with a little help from my friends) over a summer. At graduation I was awarded Diave Diamond’s General Manager Staff of the Year.
