“I got a job offer and was up there for five years. It was a great experience that gave me all kinds of opportunities as a broadcaster. I worked as a studio host, announcer, I got to travel, so I was able to do a lot of things that helped me come into my own as a broadcaster, but in the back of my mind I knew I was a broadcaster and sports journalist at heart and never wanted to lose focus on the main goal.”
